About us

The heat_it founders

Started while studying...

We four founders studied together at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and have grown together thanks to our one-year study abroad in the USA and various project work. 

During outdoor activities in summer, annoyed by mosquito and wasp stings, we got to know the treatment using therapeutic hyperthermia - artificially generated temperature increases - in 2016.

Founder. For good reasons.

The working principle convinced us, but not the available products. Too bulky and inflexible. So why not use the smartphone to control such an insect bite healer, to supply it with energy and to enable additional functions?

And so we decided at the end of 2016 to take the development into our own hands.
