Swisstom AG, founded in 2009 in Landquart (Canton Grison, Switzerland), develops and manufactures innovative medical devices for the monitoring of lung and heart function in ICU patients and in neonates undergoing general anaesthesia. End-users include physicians (primarily intensivists, anaesthesiologists), neonatologists and other health care professionals.
Unlike traditional tomographic methods, Swisstom's bedside imaging technology is based on non-radiating principles: Electrical Impedance Tomography EIT. This technology will serve Swisstom as platform for future product developments.
The company name SWISSTOM stands for "tomography made in Switzerland".
The vision of Swisstom AG is to become a globally active and leading provider of life saving, non-invasive medical technology for patient monitoring - to the benefit of patients, physicians, caregivers and society.
