In the very beginning – more than 130 years ago – Carl Heyer started as an engineer in fine mechanics and recognized the potential of inhalation technology. He also saw the need for improvement and further development to remove technical flaws. He opened his own workshop, and that was the foundation of HEYER Medical.
In 1883, mechanical engineer Carl Heyer began to develop devices enabling healing vapors to be inhaled without the need to visit thermal springs. Over the years, his devices became increasingly compact and, thanks to industrial production, increasingly affordable, so that soon they could be shipped to doctors and clinics all over the world. Similarly, atomization of medication was developed, enabling targeted local treatment of respiratory tract diseases to be administered and further boosting the spread of inhalation technology.
At HEYER, the experience we have gained in inhalation technology has enabled us to build up a further sector – anesthesia technology. HEYER equipment enables doctors to administer anesthetic gas to patients in precisely monitored amounts.
It is no coincidence that HEYER's headquarters are situated in Bad Ems. Here, at this world-famous health resort, the healing powers of mineral-rich water vapors for all kinds of respiratory tract diseases have been well known for hundreds of years. Tsars, emperors, ministers, and writers once came here to convalesce at the thermal springs. And it was here too that inhalation technology began its rise to international acceptance– a development in which HEYER played a significant role.
Awards and patents followed – and our products were delivered all around the world. The HEYER brand was born and grew, and they have always been a guarantee for German quality.
Continuous research and development, technical progress, and the ambition to do more – for the clinic, physician, and patient – have made it possible to expand our product spectrum into the fields of anesthesia, intensive ventilation, and patient monitoring.
Today HEYER is an international company. The experience we have collected throughout our long corporate history is the ideal foundation for our development of market-oriented products which put innovations into practice.
In order to strengthen our international presence and to better serve our growing list of customers and installations, we established our own offices in India, Malaysia, Washington, and the Middle-East region, and also a subsidiary in Beijing.
Our innovations are driven by the needs of our customers, thereby helping them to do a better job through our technical development and support!
