Dr. Langer Medical GmbH among the TOP 100 Innovators 2022 in Germany
Waldkirch, March 2022 – Distinguished innovation management: As a think tank, the company Dr. Langer Medical GmbH from Waldkirch won over the jury in the 29th round of the TOP 100 competition and was honoured with the TOP 100 award for 2022. Only particularly innovative medium-sized companies are bestowed this award.
What is TOP 100?
As the only innovation contest in Germany, TOP 100 examines the innovation management and innovation success of a company. TOP 100 not only awards a prize to individual products, it also scrutinizes all of the steps in a company“s innovation process.
On behalf of the organisers of the comparison, „compamedia“, the innovation researcher Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke and his team undertook their assessment at the company Dr. Langer Medical while looking at more than 100 innovation indicators from five categories: innovation-friendly senior management, climate of innovation, innovative processes and organisation, outward-looking strategy / open innovation, and successful innovations. Essentially, the TOP 100 analysis addresses the question of whether a company“s innovations are only produced by chance or whether they are systematically planned and thus reproducible again in the future. Special weighting is given to the issue of whether and how new products and product improvements will prevail on the market.
Dr. Langer Medical has specialised in intraoperative neuromonitoring and has become known internationally over the past 2 decades, especially in the field of thyroid surgery. Last year the company received two important awards: the Plus X award in 4 disciplines for the neuromonitor AVALANCHE® SI2 and the renowned IF award for the user interface design of the new neuromonitor AVALANCHE® Plus for neurosurgery. „We are on an undiminished course of expansion“, explains Christian Hartmann, who has been on board as the third managing director with responsibility for Sales and Marketing since March 2021, working alongside the two managing partners Dr. Andreas Langer and Dipl.-Ing. Heike Langer. „With our philosophy, „the art of neuromonitoring“, we are striving relentlessly to achieve the best possible combination of complex applications and usability. We have been highly successful in achieving this goal with our flagship product AVALANCHE® Plus. The enthusiasm of our customers is our motivation every single day and inspiration for new ideas“, states Dr. Andreas Langer, who is very proud of the TOP 100 seal together with his highly qualified team of employees.
The seal is given to three different size categories so that all contestants have equal chances of winning: small businesses with up to 50 employees, medium-sized companies with 51 to 200 employees, and large businesses with more than 200 staff. A total of 436 SMEs applied, 294 of which were successful and are among this year“s TOP 100 (maximum 100 per size category).
„To what extent is a business innovation-oriented? How consistently do its structures follow this goal? We examine these issues in the TOP 100 contest“, explains Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke, the research director of TOP 100. „The most innovative SMEs receive the seal. It shows that they are extremely well prepared for future challenges“.
On 24 June there will be a second reason to celebrate: The Top Innovators for 2022 will come together for the award ceremony in Frankfurt, which will be held at the German SME Summit, to receive congratulations from Ranga Yogeshwar. For eleven years, the science journalist has been mentoring the innovation contest, and this year, Dr. Langer Medical is one of the honourees.
