Mecuris, a Munich, Germany-based medical technology startup, raised a seed funding round of undisclosed amount.
Backers included High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF) and Bayern Kapital.
The company intends to use the funds to expand the platform and develop additional applications.
Founded in 2016 as a spin-off of the Hospital of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) Munich by Manuel Opitz, CEO, Mecuris works in collaboration with orthopaedic suppliers and medical supply stores to enable the individual and custom-made production of orthopaedic aids by means of an intuitive web-based platform and subsequent manufacturing using 3D printing.
This includes orthoses (e.g. for stabilising the cervical spine) and prostheses (e.g. artificial limbs), as well as equipment such as covers for below-knee prostheses.
The company provides orthopaedic clinics and medical supply stores with its platform and offers a full service package right up to delivery of the manufactured products. Design data is adjusted to a patient’s anatomy in an automated fashion based on digital patient data (CT, scanning, photos).
