The people behind the new self-healing

The team behind pneemo® consists of Swiss founders Thomas Flatt and Felix Strobl, designer Urban Würsch, biomedical scientist Chloë Harverson, and a small production, certification, and development team in Basel, the pharmaceutical capital of Switzerland. Since 2003, the team has successfully developed innovations in oral care. In 2011, the team began working with respiratory specialist Heidrun Fehrl-Kahn on controlled, slow-paced breathing. With the development of a simple, scientifically proven breathing trainer, the team wants to revolutionise self-healing and increase the quality of life for many people.

Great teachers

Not only the works of Professor Loew, and other scientists, but so many other wise women and men, such as Wim Hof or the inspiring Zen Master of our retreat in Japan, have inspired us by teaching the meaning and the secret of controlled and slow-paced breathing.

The creation of pneemo

Inclusive design

pneemo® was designed to fit neatly in the palm of your hand. Our goal was to create something compact for portability, but substantial enough that it can be gripped for support – as if pneemo® is holding your hand.

The start button is positioned at the most natural position when holding pneemo® in your hand. The elastic band covers the switch to maintain approachability.

The charging port located and the cover and has space for future updates such as a wireless connection. The ribbonis holding the cover in place.

Traditional crafts

Its stylish ribbon lanyard was woven in Switzerland, which harks back to the traditional technique that was once an important craft in the North-West of the country.

With this ribbon, pneemo® sits both comfortably and fashionably round your neck, providing you easy access in case of emergencies. It’s the accessory you didn’t know you needed that not only makes you feel good, but also makes you look good.

We then added to this a band to secure the device, and a lanyard for accessibility, particularly during emergencies. pneemo®'s striking colours are not only visually appealing, but they help the device be more easily located.

Hopefully, we can soon put pneemo® into your hands and the hands of the world. From theories and words to a patented, scientifically proven method! A clever, simple, and proven method of self-care to find health within yourself.

We invite you to become part of the movement. Many hundreds of people have already pre-ordered pneemo® and now it is available. Be one of the first to try it.
