VisionHealth GmbH, a pioneer in digital therapeutics (DTx) to enhance inhaled treatment of
chronic lung diseases, today announced the successful closing of a private financing round
led by DB Speciality Invest GmbH & Co. KG, Neu-Ulm, Germany. The investment firm is

The new funds will be used to finance a second, larger study, which will enable VisionHealth
to provide even stronger scientific evidence to decision makers and physicians when
evaluating their recommendation of the Kata® app, a class IIa medical device (CE, MDR). The
study is designed as a randomly controlled, multi-centric trial over the period of one year
with around 120 patients suffering from chronic respiratory diseases asthma or COPD.
Dr. Dietrich Bruchmann, founder and CEO of Nuvisan Pharma Holding Group, said: “I am
eager to see the potential of Kata® unfold, as access for asthma and COPD patients improves.
Heading a CRO active in the respiratory field, I have also been intrigued by the application of
the Kata® Clinical app in clinical trials: Incorrect inhaled admission of therapeutics can be a
major error factor. Supporting each patient individually via the app on how to administer an
inhalator properly improves patient outcomes in everyday life and also the quality of clinical
trial results, ensuring maximum benefit from therapy.”
Dr. Sabine Haeussermann, CEO and founder of VisionHealth, added: “We are excited to back
up the very positive proof of concept study results with more data on the efficiency of Kata®.
With over 2.400 users since the first release, a stunning 83.3 % of users told us they would
like to continue using the Kata® App in the future; similar amounts of users would
recommend the app to friends with respiratory diseases. It is truly rewarding to see how we can make a difference for patients and improve health outcomes”.

Frederic Vincent & Dr. Edouard Gobitz, Managing Partners Asklepios Advisors, Healthcare
focused Investment Bank added: “Our firm is delighted to have supported Vision Health in
such financing round. This transaction demonstrates Asklepios Advisors strong commitment
& innovative approach to supporting its clients in their next growth phase.”
