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 revolutionise the way gait rehabilitation is performed and supports patients across the globe in regaining their independence after a life-changing injury or surgery.

ReActive Robotics is incubated at the ESA BIC Bavaria since February 2015 until February 2017.
