What is Ludwig Med?

Ludwig Med is an easy-to-use, hygienic and mobile music therapy system – patent pending – the first data-driven of its kind

Strictly Evidence Based Combination of Art & Science

We create functional and adaptomorphic music solutions
directly optimized for the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and (Neuro-)Rehabilitation.

Our system, easy to use and quick to deploy, plays on any Windows device and consists of our Music Generation AI, headphones, and a sensor for personalization.

Personalized, Real-time Music Generation

Our Precision Music Medicine solution creates music snippets in real-time based on physiological data. All while following a therapeutic strategy, each snippet, intricately woven into a highly appealing musical experience, ensures a fresh acoustic impression with each use, meeting the individual needs of each patient.

For the Quadruple Aim

By using music to regulate the patient’s physiological state, we help reduce anxiety, stress, and pain, while promoting healthy sleep patterns. This approach not only soothes the patient and improves the outcomes, but also reduces strain on the medical staff and helps cut down on the extensive costs of prolonged ICU stays.

For the Love of our Patients

Our system massively facilitates access to music therapy and is personalized, participatory, and human-centered, following the current gold standards of music therapy. Based on scientific findings on the effect of music, we help patients with the right music and the right strategy at the right time. 

How does it work?

Music has immense power over people and is able to interact with them in many ways.
AtemKreis 1

At Ludwig Med, we utilize the fact that music affects the breath, which in turn affects the heart, which in turn affects the nervous system, all in a constant cycle.

This has been shown numerous times in recent decades.
Please find here a list of relevant studies.

As there are more publications coming out every couple of weeks, we cordially invite you to contact us at any time to give you an overview of the most recent developments.

Our system is very easy to use, yet highly effective.

Enhancing  outcome and experience through all stages of treatment.

The system is operated by professional medical caregivers, who are thus able to devote more time to direct communication and, above all, interaction with patients – one of the main concerns of music therapy.

Additionally, it can also be used by the patients alone, which increases the density of therapy and also enables telemedical use.

Who are we?

Our team consists of experts from art, medicine, engineering and business.

We focus on the people we help.

Their fates and the fact that music therapy is still not available everywhere – which could massively help – also prompted us to establish our company.

We precede this foundation with a quote from our namesake Ludwig van Beethoven:

„Doctor sperrt das Thor dem Todt: Note hilft auch aus der Noth.“

(„Doctor blocks the gate to death, music also helps out of distress.“ four-voice canon, WoO 189)
