It is no coincidence that HEYER’s headquarters are in Bad Ems. Here, at this world-famous health resort, the healing powers of mineral-rich water vapour 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.
In 1883, mechanical engineer Carl Heyer began to develop devices enabling healing vapours 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: anaesthesia technology. HEYER equipment enables doctors to administer anaesthetic gas to patients in precisely monitored amounts.
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.
