We provide support during the entire process of digital connectivity thanks to our unique combination of experts from different disciplines. We think, research and develop solutions based on the combination of the following areas of expertise:
The mdeg competence mix

Our goal is the identification and use of synergy effects. Convinced by our philosophy and driven by curiosity and passion, we support our customers during the process of connecting their medical devices to the digital world and in the valorisation of the acquired device data.
Our Experience, our Network
We have many years of experience and extensive networks in Switzerland, Germany and other EU countries. We would like to further expand both and make them available to our customers. For this reason, we are represented for our customers through one location in Switzerland and one location in Germany.
