Mystim GmbH was founded in 2005 by Christoph Hofmann. According to him, the founding was a direct reaction to the increasing demand he noted during his work for a medical engineering company that produces electric current devices and applications for therapeutical and medical use. The brand Mystim was to manufacture specialized products that allow electric current to be used safely and risk free in an erotic context. The e-stim devices for instance conform to the German law and secondary legislation for medical devices.
