About us

We are a team of engineers and friends coming from different institutions, and all working at Campus Biotech and EPFL, Switzerland. We are very motivated and passionate about health and medical technologies. We want to help people with disabilities and to make our prototypes open source and available to other people in the need. We have launched our first hackathon in 2018 to follow our dream
