Summary

Summary: 
Beehive air therapy is a holistic naturopathic treatment. The beehive produces valuable substances such as essential oils and flavonoids from honey, pollen, wax and propolis. The resulting beehive air is very healthy and can fight various diseases and allergies through inhalation. Therefore, a German company has developed a complete solution for the use of beehive air. The type of cooperation could take the form of a commercial agreement with technical assistance, for example.

Description

Description: 

With the growing demands of everyday life, the interest of many people to get involved in their own health and well-being is increasing. This also enlarges the demand for holistic health services. The German company has been working for many years on the effects of bee products, including the use of beehive air for therapeutic purposes. Beehive air therapy is a holistic naturopathic treatment. The beehive produces valuable substances such as essential oils and flavonoids from honey, pollen, wax and propolis. The beehive air produced from these components is very healthy. Many different diseases and allergies can be successfully treated by inhalation of the beehive air. For this reason, the company has developed a complete solution for the use of beehive air. It is the only one on the market that meets the strict requirements of the European legislator for the Medical Devices Act (Directive 93/42 / EEC) and thus with regard to operational safety and hygiene. Due to the modular structure, the system can be extended as desired.

The system for using beehive air mainly consists of:
- A house that can accommodate 3 to 5 patients depending on your choice.
- Several beehives that are only open to the outside. Thus, the patients have no contact with the bees.
- An inhalation device that sucks the beneficial air of beehives without disturbing the bees.

The inhalation device mainly consists of:
- A suction hood, which will placed on an opening above the bee colony for the purpose of bee air inhalation, after removing the cover.
- A blower and control unit, which are bolted to the exhaust hood.
- A heated hose system
- At the end of the tube, there is a valve, which prevents breathing back into the hose.
- A breathing mask

Currently, the unique system is being sold beyond the borders of Germany. However, the company is looking for further agreements with potential partners worldwide, for example under a commercial agreement with technical assistance.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The complete solution for the use of beehive air meets the requirements of the European legislator for medical devices (Directive 93/42 / EEC). No comparable product on the market meets these stringent requirements. Thus, the operational safety and hygiene can be optimally ensured. The patients have no contact with the bees and the bees themselves are not disturbed. The system includes a heated hose system and it prevents breathing back into the hose. The modular design allows any extension of the system at any time. The application area is very diverse. Potential users are, for example, patients with lung disease. After all, that's over 25% of the population.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
So far, the system is used in rehabilitation clinics. Above all, these are considered potential end customers. The system is also suitable as a treatment tool for general practitioners or hospitals who want to offer special and holistic naturopathic treatment options. As a result, the partner sought should have the best possible contacts in the health sector. However, the company is also open to other fields of application. Thus, for example, the application is currently being studied on animals, in particular horses.
