EMPOWER PATIENTS TO BREATHE


We all breathe, and often take it for granted. 

Stimit is developing solutions for patients lacking
this natural breathing function.

SPONTANEOUS BREATHING vs. MECHANICAL VENTILATION

Normal Breathing

diaphragm contraction creates physiological negative pressure 

Intensive Care Today

Machine forces air into lung
Unnatural positive pressure
Inactive, passive breathing muscles 

STIM IT, DON’T LOOSE IT

By stimulating the breathing muscle, STIMIT aims to keep the breathing muscle active and functional

ACTIVATE THE LUNG

Stimit AG was created to activate the core breathing muscle (diaphragm).

VISION

BREAKTHROUGH IN CRITICAL CARE
the future critical care patient is active and mobile


EMPOWER PATIENTS TO BREATHE
creating natural breath instead of pumping air
