We are Team heat it®

How everything began...

The brilliant idea originally came about in 2017 during a student competition. Fed up with mosquito bites, we tried out the treatment using concentrated heat and were immediately convinced by the principle, but not by the available products. Too clunky, never with us and unadaptable! So we decided to take the development into our own hands.

On an itch-free mission

Insect bites can be treated effectively with heat, but sting healers must also be available in a "smart" way. With this incentive, our 4 founders began to develop an innovative medical product while still studying engineering. Now we are Kamedi GmbH - a dynamic startup from Karlsruhe with our own development and production.
