As a family-run company, we have been active in the hospital and homecare sector throughout Austria for more than 70 years. We have made it our mission to make the daily lives of clinical staff easier and to sustainably improve the quality of life of patients through innovative medical products and competent advice. In doing so, we have always placed customer welfare at the center of all our decisions.
Our mission is our customers
Founded in 1952 by Hellmut Habel, the family business is now managed by Markus Schimel, the third generation of the family to do so. Much has changed since then, but one thing has always remained the same over the generations - what is close to our hearts: our customers. In the hospital sector, we offer a broad product portfolio of medical equipment and consumables with a focus on anesthesia and intensive care medicine, internal medicine and pneumology, sleep medicine, neonatology and obstetrics, and emergency medicine. In the homecare sector, our focus is on sleep apnea therapy, oxygen supply, home ventilation, secretion mobilization and outpatient pain therapy.

With us, you have a competent partner at your side whom you can trust and rely on. Customer proximity, individual consultation and comprehensive services are our strengths.

Habel Medizintechnik was founded by Hellmut Habel as a family business in 1952 . The headquarters was located in the 7th district of Vienna Zollergasse 14.
Soon after the company acquired new clients and expanded its product portfolio . A milestone in the company's history was 1960, the introduction of Hico Climamask in Austria , which has sold over 140,000 units.
In the early 70s, the company was able to establish itself through the sales of medical equipment and supplies in the hospital sector - for example, the first electronically controlled syringe pumps and ventilators.
At that time, the company staff had grown from originally two employees to about twenty. A dedicated field staff looked after customers all across Austria, on site - and a technical department was in charge of safety inspections as well as service and repair of equipment.
During the 80s the company was able to establish itself further with the addition of home therapy services like SIDS monitors in 1983 and the first generation of sleep therapy devices in 1987.
Since the 80s, the company and it's comprehensive device- and consumables programs are part and parcel in Austrian clinics with emphasis on ventilators, anesthesia, sleep medicine and critical care.
Due to continuous growth, the company was in need of a much larger site to house expanded office space and warehouses. At this point in 1989 the head office in the 21st district of Vienna, Ignaz- Köck- Straße 20, was built
The HABEL training forum was established - a broad platform consisting of training courses, workshops and product training. One of it's biggest events, the intensive care meeting, is held annually with over 450 participants and is an integral part of the training in Austrian intensive care.
With over 70 years of history, Habel Medizintechnik is still a thriving family business, now managed by Markus Schimel, the grandson of the company's founder. Today the company employs more than 60 people in both it's headquarters and two other facilities.
In the hospital sector, we are a competent partner for our customers and offer a unique and ever growing product portfolio of medical equipment and consumables.
In the homecare sector we are specialized in sleep apnea therapy, home ventilation and oxygen therapy. Our homecare team takes care of our customers throughout Austria, both in respiratory centers and on site.
