History

 

Humares® GmbH – Groundbreaking medical technology

1978

1978

After a 3-month examination by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce Karlsruhe, the company name “Technomed Karlsruhe” is entered into the commercial register of Karlsruhe. Purpose of the company founded by Karl-Alexander Hübner: the development of innovative electro-medical devices for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.

1979

Begin of development of a long-term stable, powerful ozone generator for medical and industrial use. These ozone generators are developed as entirely new devices and adapted to practical requirements. In the following years, many more than 1000 of these new ozone generator modules are sold to five or six device manufactures. A patent of, at the time, Technomed Karlsruhe (now Humares® GmbH).

1980

For Technomed Karlsruhe, Corozon was probably the essential key to the success. This test console has been used until today for testing ozone-burdened components under extreme conditions. Temperature, air humidity, atmospheric ozone, pressure and vibration are independently configured, and the long-term behaviour of the components is checked. A patent of, at the time, Technomed Karlsruhe (now Humares® GmbH).  

1981

1981

The world’s smallest dual-beam ozone photometer with a, until then, unprecedented measurement range of µg/m3 to g/m3 ozone is presented to amazed experts. Two expert reports of the University of Karlsruhe confirm its impressive technical data. A patent of, at the time, Technomed Karlsruhe (now Humares® GmbH).

1982

1982

The Humazon® Unit, the, until then, first ozone therapy device with real measurement technology. Ozone concentration, ozone dose, gas flow, gas pressure, temperature and many other parameters are measured and displayed. For many years, the system was protected with five Technomed (now Humares® GmbH) patents.

1983

1983

Performance data for the new ozone generators with Humares® measuring technology are published in various specialist journals. Worldwide over 50 of these Labozon generators are sold within the science and technology sector.

1984

1984

“Dent O3”, the first device unit is created for dentistry, which – in addition to ozone gas, ozone water and the popular NaCl solution – also provides an integrated hand-syringe and micromotor. Dent O3 makes it possible to, for the first time, perform an optimal aseptic treatment with sterile solutions. A patent of, at the time, Technomed Karlsruhe (now Humares® GmbH).

1985

1985

The universal ozone therapy device Humazon® ProMedic is completed. The device uses our ozone generator technology that has proven itself thousands of times. Humazon® ProMedic is suitable for all practical ozone-oxygen therapies. Over 1800 Humazon® PM devices were sold to customers by 1999. A patent of, at the time, Technomed Karlsruhe (now Humares® GmbH).

1986

1986

The year of the Humacolon® device series. None of the colon devices previously offered on the market met our expectations for reliable therapeutic application. The key to our success was the patented intestinal tube that induces liquid in a clean and safe manner. The induced volume can be precisely detected with the built-in volume measurement system.

1988

1988

For the major extracorporeal autohaemotherapy Humares® GmbH develops and manufactures the first infusion combination bottle on the market that consists of ozone-resistant plastic and contains all required disposable items for the therapy. Sangiset® offers the greatest possible safety for aseptically flawless autoheamotherapy in a closed system.

1990

1990

Technomed Karlsruhe is informed that, despite a commercial register examination by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce in 1978, another company with the name Technomed was registered in the commercial register since 1949. The company has to change its name due to competition law. The result is the current company name Humares® (derived from human-research).

1991

1991

Development of Humabel, the world’s first ozone device for cosmetics. Principle: Tempered ozone gas is used for gassing the body, which results in skin tightening and revitalisation.

1992

All of our medical devices receive the quality designation GS (tested safety) by DEKRA Stuttgart.

1993

1993

Our small and cost-efficient colon-/ hydrotherapy device Humacolona® for cold and warm water connection with all functions of a modern colon-/hydro-purging device is launched. The clear structure provides simple operation and control of filling pressure, purging temperature and purging liquid.

1994

1994

The market demands a low-cost PO2 meter for oxygen multi-step therapy that can quickly measure oxygen increase in the patient’s blood during oxygen ventilation. Therefore Humares develops a PO2 monitor, which measures arterial oxygen partial pressure transcutaneously by means of a Clark sensor. Over 900 devices have been sold successfully.

1997

1997

Further development of the successful Humazona® series: Humares® releases Humadent®, an ozone device for daily dental practice. An ingenious and sophisticated handpiece for all Luer hollow needles demonstrates optimised handling and usage both in conservative as well as in surgical practice.

1998

Humares® GmbH maintains a quality management system according to DIN EN ISO 9001 for the areas of development, production, assembly, maintenance and distribution of medical products. Certification according to the new European Directive 93/42 EEC by the notified body Eurocat CE 0535. After initial examination, all Humares® articles are granted the EC Certificate of Conformity.

2002

2002

A special service is instituted for long-term customers. Devices that are older than 25 years are maintained free of charge until the customer shuts down or transfers the practice. We can rebuild spare parts without hassle since we manufacture all components and can, therefore, maintain the device with which our customers are familiar.

2006

2006

The Humazon® ProMedic device conquers the Chinese market: The ProMedic device with ozone throttling is approved for the Chinese market without objection after extensive testing by the Chinese regulatory authority CFDA. Moreover, Humares® GmbH also moves into a new, modernised production hall in Bruchsal-Untergrombach, which includes a laboratory, office spaces and expanded storage area.

2008

2008

Celebration of the company’s 30-year anniversary with all employees and foreign representations. The company takes stock: Up until 2008, approx. 1,500,000 patients have been treated worldwide with our devices and associated disposable items without incident. A remarkable success story that fills us with pride and must be continued in a sustainable manner.

2010

2010

After a norm change, Humares® GmbH is now certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 and DIN EN ISO 13485:2003.

2011

2011

Facelift of the popular Humazon® ProMedic. Our universal Humazon® ProMedic ozone-/ oxygen therapy device gets a new and more modern case including a convenient integrated tray for quick access to disposable items needed for the therapy and an additional 5 volt output for connecting external devices.

2012

The continuous quality standard of Humares® GmbH is verified for the design, development, production, assembly, maintenance and distribution of medical devices according to DIN-EN-ISO 13485:2010, EN-ISO 13485:2003+AC:2009 and DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 by an audit from February 2012.    

2014

The newly developed Sangiskop ensures precise observation of the blood-flow rate in ml/sec for reinfusion during autohaemotherapy. Sangiskop allows for a timely detection in order to determine whether the motion of a punctured hollow needle is smooth or not. This extension to the Sangiset® device is the perfect complement for the autotransfusion system.

2015

2015

A sanitary room is provided for practical application and training with our Humacolon® system in order to hold increasingly popular practical colon-hydrotherapy seminars on our company premises.

2016

2016

Amicable cooperation with company Eumatron from Munich, which provides products for photobiological autohaemotherapy, leads to the takeover of the company and its product portfolio on account of the well-deserved retirement of its owner, Hans Müller. We regard this product portfolio as the ideal complement to our ozone therapy devices.

2017

After the transfer of the German BSI business office to the British parent group, we are now certified via the British BSI Group in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13485:2003 and DIN EN ISO 13485:2012 and Directive 93/42/EEC. The entire scope of the certification is stated in the current certificates.
