The team behind heat_it
It began during our studies...
We four founders studied together at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and have grown closely together through our one-year study abroad in the USA and various project works.
During outdoor activities in summer 2016, annoyed by mosquito and wasp bites, we learned about the treatment with therapeutic hyperthermia - artificially generated temperature increase.
heat_it - The smart treatment of insect bites
The active principle convinced us, but not the available products. Too bulky, never with us and inflexible. So why not use the smartphone to control such a product, supply it with energy and enable additional functions ?
And so we decided to take the development into our own hands at the end of 2016:
