Humeca was founded in 1981. In 1984 Humeca started a cooperation with surgeons of the Red Cross Hospital in Beverwijk, The Netherlands. The goal was to re-introduce the MEEK technique for skin transplantation in burn surgery. This method was presented by two Americans (surgeon Dr. MEEK and technician Mr. Wall) in 1958 already, but the technique was too complicated and vanished away after a few years. In 1993 a modified MEEK technique was introduced and Humeca's activities concentratedon production, development and sales. Humeca is an ISO 13485:2003 certified company.
