ReActive Robotics - one of the top 3 startups at the Start-SUMMIT

ReActive Robotics was chosen as one of the top 3 startups out of 300 companies at the Start-SUMMIT in St. Gallen, Switzerland. START Summit is one of the largest startup conferences in Europe aiming to connect startups with investors, corporates and media. This year's three-day event, attended by over 1.500 entrepreneurs, investors, corporates and students, offered different workshops and networking events.

Among 300 participating teams, the pitching competition "START Summiteer Contest" offers the best 30 startups the opportunity to pitch in front of important investors. ESA BIC Bavaria incubatee ReActive Robotics made it into the top 3 with their exceptional business case "Rehabilitation Robotics for Very Early Mobilization".

ReActive Robotics GmbH
ReActive Robotics designs, manufactures, and sells rehabilitation robots that automate gait rehabilitation in the ICU at a very early stage, just 48 hours after the onset of neurological injury or joint replacement surgery. Their devices attach directly to the patient's bed, eliminating the need for dangerous transfers onto separate devices. They are used for the gait rehabilitation of neurological patients following a central nervous injury and by orthopedic patients after joint replacement.

ReActive Robotics' mission is to enable clinicians, particularly in intensive care, to provide the best possible care to neurological and orthopedic patients and help them recover from their injuries. ReActive Robotics aims to revolutionize the way gait rehabilitation is performed and supports patients across the globe in regaining their independence after a life-changing injury or surgery.

ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria
ReActive Robotics is incubated at the ESA BIC Bavaria since February 2015 until February 2017. The ESA BIC Bavaria seeks entrepreneurs using space technologies in a non-space environment. That does not mean rocket science, but applies to multiple application fields such as navigation and positioning, communications techniques, Earth observation, materials, processes, signals or robotics.

ESA's Business Incubation Centre Bavaria was launched in 2009 and is ever since managed by Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO). ESA BIC Bavaria and its renowned partners - DLR, Airbus Defense and Space, Fraunhofer IIS and Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Berchtesgadener Land - provide startups with financial and technical support at four branch offices: Oberpfaffenhofen, Ottobrunn, Nürnberg and Berchtesgadener Land.
