CHF 150,000 for smart wearables invented in Switzerland

EPFL spin-off Sensemodi, focusing on monitoring joint health, wins the final stage of Venture Kick. Congratulations to the team of founders Tomás Teijeiro Campo, Jerome Thevenot, and David Atienza!

Sensemodi is developing a smart wearable device that can analyse thermal, acoustic and kinematic data for fast joint health assessment at any Point of Care. The extracted data is used to assess the knee function and can help detect certain joint conditions earlier, for example osteoarthritis, an irreversible degradation of cartilage.

The goal of the technology is to prevent disability and decrease socioeconomic burden caused by musculoskeletal disorders, by easily checking and monitoring joint health anywhere. The technology has further applications in rehabilitation, diagnostics, sports and research.
