BHS was founded in 2017 in Innsbruck, Austria, with a vision to revolutionise microsurgery with products that adapt to the surgeon – not the other way round.
In three years, we have made our way to the medical device market in several European countries and this is just the beginning. We started just with the idea, that things could be done differently. Better. Like never before.
That is still our guiding rule. We want to create products, that suit our customers. Medical devices, that have been optimised for what they have been created for.
We approach things differently and we choose new ways, new possibilities in everything we do. What we always keep in mind, is that we make products that adapt to the surgeon – not the other way round.
We work on developing products that are accessible and affordable whilst still maintaining our core values of working sustainably and creating permanent value. We consider sustainability in everything that we do. In every part of the supply chain, we - like always, search for new ways.
Our first product, RoboticScope® was CE-certified as a Class I medical product in March 2020. RoboticScope® is therefore approved for use in surgical operations in the European Union.
Already before entering the market in May 2020, BHS Technologies was awarded with numerous innovation prizes for the development of RoboticScope®. These prizes and especially the feedback from our customers are driving us forward and guiding our way towards even more outstanding innovations.
The world of microsurgery needs something novel, something ground-breaking. And that is why BHS Technologies was founded in the first place. Sometimes, a change of perspective is enough to see things in a new way.
