How it all began...

The brilliant idea originally came about during a student competition in the summer of 2016. Fed up with mosquito bites, we tried out the treatment using concentrated heat and were immediately convinced by the active principle, but not by the available products. Too clunky, never with us and inflexible! And so we decided to take the development into our own hands.

We are Team heat it®
On an itch-free mission

Insect bites can be treated effectively with heat, but there must also be a "smart" insect bite healer. With this incentive, our 4 founders began to develop an innovative medical product while still studying engineering. Now we are Kamedi GmbH - a dynamic start-up from Karlsruhe with our own development and production.

Cutting-edge technology
Made in Germany | Karlsruhe

Since 2019, we are a certified medical device manufacturer with our own development and production in the Technologiefabrik Karlsruhe. Over 10 clever minds work in the most diverse specialist areas of our medtech start-up. From procurement to production to shipping: we leave nothing out of our hands.
