Our Responsibility

As a health innovator, commercial enterprise and regional employer, we assume social responsibility locally and globally and make our contribution to the sustainable shaping of our future and that of future generations.

Christoph GerberCEO

We are actively committed to implementing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals*:

*Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – adopted as part of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

Health is our core business. Our products allow us to make an important contribution to improving the health and quality of life of patients and their families. We develop and promote gentle treatment methods that help improve or restore patients’ health before irreversible damage occurs that would require long-term care. This means we are actively helping to relieve the burden on the healthcare system and society. Our cardiac RF ablation systems are among the most effective treatment methods for many types of cardiac arrhythmia. The most common form is atrial fibrillation, which affects around 10% of the population over the age of 65 and is responsible for around 20% of strokes. Early and minimally invasive treatment helps dramatically reduce the risk of stroke and death from heart failure.

As a training company and partner of cooperative universities, as well as the regional chamber of commerce, we play an important educational role. We partner with leading universities and research institutes to advance education and research.

We are committed to the individual training and further development of our employees – from young professionals starting out in their career to employees with decades of experience.

The versatility and diversity of our workforce makes us strong. We are committed to enhancing the role of women and promote gender equality and diversity in the company – from the general workforce through to management levels.

Our employees are key to achieving our mission. We foster an environment of diversity that promotes personal and professional development and leaves no room for discrimination of any kind.

We believe in honesty, integrity, transparency and fair competition. We partner with companies that share the same standards and ideals to deliver quality healthcare together.

The focus of our research is the development of minimally invasive treatment methods that are much more resource-efficient and require significantly less material than conventional treatments with longer inpatient stays.

The power supply to our company building is provided exclusively through certified sustainable energy. By investing in a modern ventilation and air conditioning system, we can ensure the energy-efficient air conditioning of our business premises and production facility.

We create incentives to switch to environmentally friendly means of transport for the commute to work and for business trips. These include employer subsidies for push bikes and e-bikes as company bicycles.

Cybersecurity & Data Privacy

The processing of personal data is an important issue for us and part of our corporate culture, which we always approach with integrity and responsibility. This also means that we respect and safeguard the data protection rights of our employees and our business partners. We keep our IT systems up to date and train our workforce so that we can guarantee data security at all times.
