We’re also exploring solutions to ensure that our products can be recycled or at least offset the CO2 emissions resulting from their use. This is a crucial issue that we take seriously, and we’re committed to taking action to minimize the environmental impact of our products,” he says.
Turning Challenges into Opportunities
Speaking of challenges, Timo highlights specific points that are noteworthy within the industry. He says, “At Morpheus AG, we face several challenges in conducting our operations, particularly with the increased requirements of the MDR. This has sadly forced many Med-Tech companies to reevaluate our approach to innovation, prioritizing economic viability over patient benefit. This challenge is particularly acute in the EU market, where we fear that innovative products may be shifted towards markets like the US or Asia due to the stringent MDR requirements.”
He then continues, “As a startup, we recognize the importance of global presence, and this remains one of our main strategic objectives in terms of building our distribution networks. However, we also recognize that there will always be changes and challenges in local markets, which is why we believe it’s important to have a broad and diverse sales structure.”
“At Morpheus AG, we see these challenges as opportunities for growth. While we recognize that there may be obstacles to innovation in the EU market. But we also believe that there are still significant opportunities to develop and market innovative products globally. By broadening our sales network and taking a proactive approach to global expansion, we’re confident that we can overcome these challenges and continue to grow as a company.

However, things took a turn when I received personal coaching and later discovered through various tests that I had above-average creative abilities. This sparked my interest in medical technology even more, and I started looking for ways to channel my creativity into this field. I wanted to build a platform where I could bring my ideas to life and create innovative products that could help improve patient outcomes.
My vision was to create innovative medical devices that could improve the lives of patients and physicians alike. I knew that the key to success in this field was to combine technical expertise with creative thinking, and that’s what we’ve been doing at Morpheus AG ever since. I build a team consisting of highly skilled engineers, designers, medical professionals, and a small but truly experienced sales team who share my passion for innovation. So basically, my journey into the medical device sector was inspired by my family’s legacy, my passion for medical technology, and my creative abilities.”
