The initial impetus for Limmex came from the City of Zurich: A city councillor mentioned to the founders that a discreet emergency call system would be of considerable use for elderly people in the city of Zurich. «Limmex» is the consequence of these inputs and its name is also derived from the city at the Limmat. Since then various authorities in the city of Zurich, from city doctors to the Waid Hospital have contributed in the success of Limmex.
