Sensors and Measuring Systems
Our team of talented ZHAW engineers and scientists has been applying for more than nine years well-established and emerging measurement methods to relevant medical and biological problems. We collaborate with startups, international companies as well as leading academic partners and bring our engineering expertise to projects requiring state-of-the-art technical development.
We have been dedicated to creating impact by cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset and thinking beyond academic publishing, focusing on technology transfer from the laboratory to industry. Our funding sources include the Swiss Innovation Agency (Innosuisse), the EU (Eurostars, Horizon 2020), the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) and various private foundations as well as direct funding from industry.
Our core competence is the development of new sensors and measurement methods in biomedical engineering. In particular, we are experienced in skin science and technology: artificial skin models, computer simulations, development of new sensors, etc.
We benefit from the state-of-the-art infrastracture of the Optoelectronic Research Laboratory (OLAB) that allows the development of demanding prototypes.
