Precision, accuracy and quality.

Our team

Meet our team

Sleepiz AG was founded in the beginning of 2018 by three graduates of ETH Zurich and one graduate of the University of St. Gallen with the aim of providing revolutionary technology to the medical community. To achieve that, we develop our own software and hardware solution, which centers the physician and the patient. Our product measures vital signs in a contactless and medical grade manner at home, completely changing the way sleep disorders are diagnosed.

 

Since foundation, we have grown into a multi-cultural and interdisciplinary team, combining expertise in millimeter wave technology, sensor fusion, machine learning and business development. Just a five minutes’ walk from ETH, we develop our technology and business to accomplish our mission: Maximizing patient wellbeing whilst minimizing physician’s effort.

 

Until now, we were able to develop a strong network of clinical and research partners with whom we work closely together. This led to a variety of initiatives we are following with great interest. Demonstrating our achievements in several competitions also led to multiple awards. Ultimately, we were also able to secure support from the European Commission and the Swiss Innovation Agency.

 

Together we are passionately innovating within the medical domain, knowing that this is an industry where we can make a difference. We challenge the status quo and are always happy to welcome you in our office to chat, laugh and have fun. So, come and visit us!

Let’s have a look what has happened so far.
