The motivation for founding ActivCell arose from the founders’ own experience with illness. Brothers Peter and Ruedi Weber struggled with ailments that were difficult to treat and did not respond to conventional therapies. In their search for alternatives, they came across high-frequency electrotherapy and experienced impressive healing successes.
Convinced that this therapy should have a more significant place in the medical world, Peter and Ruedi Weber decided to have the technology and its mechanisms of action researched and transferred into practice. At that time, there were no handy, mobile devices approved for medical use on the market for this form of therapy.
Determined to change this situation, Ruedi and Peter Weber founded ActivCell AG in 2014 together with Swiss engineers and scientists from the fields of medical technology and industrial design. The first handy, cordless prototypes for veterinary medicine were quickly developed.
