About us - Headquater in Munich

About us

Support healthcare without limits in time and location.

Who we are

Cosinuss GmbH is a certified medical technology company based in Munich that specializes in mobile, real-time monitoring of all vital parameters. For this purpose, the highly innovative team develops its own in-ear sensors, mini-computers, algorithms and software.

More than 11 years of research and development provide a solid foundation of the company. Numerous patents and medically-certified products (presumably 2020) make cosinuss° a pioneer in the mobile monitoring area. Core applications include professional e-health care, occupational safety and high-performance sports.

With cosinuss°, the ear becomes a central interface in a world of mobile health.

What drives us

The healthcare industry is facing a major transformation and we want to be a part of it. We are convinced that vital-sign sensors can make a significant contribution to preventative healthcare by improving the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients. Our technology can be the heart of a better healthcare system.

What we offer

cosinuss° can take vital parameter supervision to a whole new level. Our ergonomic wearables offer a more cost-effective and accurate alternative to the competition for measuring the following key vital signs:

  • Core Body Temperature
  • Heart Rate
  • Arterial Oxygen Saturation
  • Respiratory Rate

We process incoming data with smart algorithms, machine learning and pattern recognition to generate customer-defined results. Secure and flexible data management rounds off our comprehensive monitoring solution.

Certification

Quality and Safety of cosinuss° products

The development, manufacturing and distribution of medical devices requires a specific company structure that enables the quality and safety of the product to be met in accordance with the regulatory requirements for medical products. The specific requirements for a Quality Management System are specified by the European Directives for Medical Devices (MDD, MDR) through the harmonized standard EN ISO 13485:2016.

For this purpose, cosinuss° has defined appropriate internal processes and established an ISO 13485-compliant Quality Management System covering design and development as well as production and distribution of monitoring devices of vital physiological parameters. The Quality Management System is audited regularly by the accredited Notified Body TÜV Süd to proof its functionality according to the harmonized standard EN ISO 13485:2016. The current certificate can be downloaded here: cosinuss-certificate-EN ISO 13485:2016.pdf

Moreover, the ISO certification is also the basis for CE approval for medical products of class IIa. cosinuss° is currently undergoing the conformity assessment procedure according to MDD Annex II without (4).

History

Technology, Research and Development

Greta and Johannes founded cosinuss° in September 2011 based on the findings of the PhD work of Johannes, which focused on developing the first wearable medical devices for home use.

Starting in the field of research and enabling technology, cosinuss° provided in the very beginnings research institutions and companies who care about the health of their customers, with enabling technology.

The first consumer product, cosinuss° One, was introduced to the market in mid 2016. The °One is a performance tracker for professional athletes to balance health and performance, health being the critical driver of performance. Since then, it found its way into professional areas of triathlon, Formula 1 racing, sailing, motorsports, fire fighters and swimming.

Greta Kreuzer, Johannes Kreuzer - cosinuss° Gründer

In 2017, cosinuss° started a successful Kickstarter campaign to launch its second consumer product, degree°. degree° is a smart digital fever assistant that continuously measures core body temperature of the child and helps parents making decisions based on it.

Further solutions and enabling technology is in development/available for:

  • Remote patient monitoring
  • COPD monitoring
  • Home Health solutions
  • mHealth solutions
  • In-clinic patient monitoring

Our Vision

Empowering people to manage their health and fitness at home.

Providing enabling technology for companies who share our vision and developing own complete solutions for selected health issues.

Our DNA

Enabling Individual mHealth Solutions

cosinuss° builds high precision in-ear sensors that continuously capture relevant vital signs in every day life. Because individual vital signs data is the essential component to create individual health insights. Only accurate data can be the basis of that.

Our Team

Getting things done

We are a team of highly motivated electrical engineers, data scientists, designers and marketers who deeply believe in the great potential of the earconnectTM technology of cosinuss° and who are determined to bring this technology to the people.
