Together, we want to make a change

…and make our homes safer and
more liva­ble as we age.

Safer and more comfortable

Help with everyday life

For a more livable future

Our vision

We aim to help pro­vi­de meaningful sup­port for our aging socie­ty. Our visi­on is of a smart home that knows its resi­dents and sup­ports them exact­ly whe­re they need help. Dis­creet, invi­si­ble and 100% com­pli­ant with data pri­va­cy laws.
Future-Shape is a pri­va­te­ly owned com­pa­ny that has been on the mar­ket for over 15 years. CE and ISO cer­ti­fi­ca­tes, num­e­rous awards and many satis­fied cus­to­mers all over the world have made us a suc­cessful play­er on the inter­na­tio­nal nur­sing care market.

Our management team

Christl Lauterbach

Foun­der and CEO

I foun­ded Future-Shape GmbH in 2005 after spen­ding over 25 years in semi­con­duc­tor rese­arch at Sie­mens and Infi­ne­on. I’m pas­sio­na­te about nur­sing care and age-appro­pria­te living arran­ge­ments. With Sen­s­Flo­or, I hope to make our lives bet­ter in old age.

In 2020, I also set up a non-pro­fit foun­da­ti­on that sup­ports tho­se in need of phy­si­cal and emo­tio­nal assis­tance and that pro­mo­tes sci­ence and rese­arch on assis­tance sys­tems. I hold over 200 patents and patent appli­ca­ti­ons and have published over 120 sci­en­ti­fic papers.

Dr. Axel Steinhage


I’ve been with Future-Shape GmbH sin­ce 2006 and direct tech­ni­cal deve­lo­p­ment in my capa­ci­ty as CTO. Neu­ro­in­for­ma­tics, sen­sor fusi­on pro­ces­ses, lear­ning sys­tems and AI have been part of my work throug­hout my enti­re care­er. After com­ple­ting my Ph.D., I work­ed on robo­tics and dyna­mic sys­tems as rese­arch direc­tor at the Ruhr Uni­ver­si­tät Bochum. As part of my work at Infi­ne­on rese­arch, I ser­ved as pro­ject mana­ger for human-machi­ne interaction.

I have been invol­ved in over one hundred sci­en­ti­fic publi­ca­ti­ons over the cour­se of my care­er and have led and sup­port­ed num­e­rous pro­jects fun­ded by the Ger­man govern­ment and the EU.

Sebastian Stoll


I have ser­ved as COO and as a mem­ber of the Future-Shape GmbH manage­ment team sin­ce 2019, whe­re I am respon­si­ble for con­ti­nuous impro­ve­ment pro­ces­ses in pro­duct and busi­ness deve­lo­p­ment. My work keeps me con­stant­ly focu­sed on the latest trends on the nur­sing care market.

Pre­vious­ly, I’ve work­ed for over 20 years in simi­lar posi­ti­ons within the field of medi­cal tech­no­lo­gy. Inno­va­tions and high­ly spe­cia­li­zed, often life-saving medi­cal devices have fasci­na­ted me for many years.
