Sense as one of the finalists for Swiss Technology Award

Nov '10
On the occasion of the 5th “Swiss Innovation Forum” which will take place on 4th November at the Novartis campus in Basel, the 23rd “Swiss Technology Award” will be announced. In designating Sense as one of the finalists, the “Swiss Technology Award” highlights on the Swiss and international stage the physiological signal monitoring technology developed by CSEM and its Swiss partners, such as AdNovum (Zurich) or Eschler Textil (St. Gallen). This achievement also offers the young company a unique opportunity to demonstrate its innovative talents.

By honoring innovation in the service of excellence, Sense – a joint venture of CSEM and Sports Unit of Innovation (SUI) – was able to stand out from among many other candidates in the start-up category. The LTMS (Long Term Monitoring System) technology, originally developed by CSEM for the European Space Agency (ESA), was designed for non-intrusive and comfortable monitoring of astronauts' health. Currently, this portable system enables continuous and simultaneous measurement of the main physiological signals such as electrocardiogram, respiration, blood–oxygen saturation, or body temperature.

Biomedical applications are mainly aimed at professional and amateur sportspersons, as well as at medical patients. Cooperations with famous F1 racing teams (McLaren) have already been agreed, and well-known football teams have confirmed their interest in this product. This concept which includes intelligent and multipurpose wireless sensors in T-shirts will enable athletes to efficiently manage their training and to significantly improve their performances. Large-scale pilot projects will be officially launched from the end of 2010 with the support of internationally renowned sport teams and federations.

Alexandros Giannakis:
“It's an exceptional recognition for us and our partners to be shortlisted among the three finalists for the “Swiss Technology Award” in the start-up category. We are honored to represent Sense today, and whatever the final outcome, we will show ourselves to be worthy of the confidence we have been granted. We would like to take this opportunity to thank CSEM and the SUI, without whom this technology and this product would never have been developed.”

CSEM, Centre Suisse d' Electronique et de Microtechnique (Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology), founded in 1984, is a private research and development center specializing in microtechnology, nanotechnology, microelectronics, system engineering and communications technologies. It offers its customers and industry partners custom-made innovative solutions based on its knowledge of the market and technological expertise derived from applied research. Having founded several start-ups, it contributes to developing Switzerland as an industrial location. To date, a total of 29 such enterprises, with more than 500 employees, have been launched by CSEM.

Sense is a joint venture created in October 2008 by CSEM and the SUI. Specialized in the sector of biomedical monitoring, the young start-up aims to transform the market of continuous and simultaneous measurement of the main physiological signals thanks to a concept of wireless sensors adapted to the needs of professional athletes as well as clinics or rehabilitation centers.

Since 1987, the “Swiss Technology Award” promotes and rewards Swiss innovative technologies internationally. It is currently considered as one of the most prestigious awards for technology in Switzerland.
