What is Ludwig Med?

Strictly evidence-based combination of art and science:

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

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

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 who need a (re-)economization of breathing or where beneficial effects of neuronal plasticity are to be triggered.

We support them during or after weaning from mechanical ventilation, as well as neurorehabilitation after stroke, and mitigate the risk of hospital-associated pneumonia.

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, e.g. based upon relevant studies.

Ludwig Med Protocol

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

Our web app allows usage on stationary and mobile devices. And if the network is poor or not available, it is also suitable for offline use.

As a science-first company, we apply evidence based processes.

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)

The diagnosis „vegetative state“ has been made – what now?

Our ears can be and remain the appropriate access to the environment: 
A way that also gives relatives the opportunity to express their loving and caring presence.

Even in a vegetative state.

We cordially invite you to contact us if you are confronted with the harsh reality of „vegetative state“ to discuss the possibilities for your relatives.
