Swisstom makes lung function visible without x-rays
Swisstom AG, located in Landquart, Switzerland, develops and manufactures innovative medical devices. Our new lung function monitor enables life-saving treatments for patients in intensive care and during general anesthesia.
Unlike traditional tomography, Swisstom´s bedside imaging is based on non-radiating principles: Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT). To date, no comparable devices can show such regional organ function continuously and in real-time at the patient’s bedside.
Swisstom creates its competitive edge by passionate leadership in non-invasive tomography with the goal to improve individual lives and therapies.
First there was a vision
“When I was still ventilating patients in the ICU and saw many of them die, it was my dearest wish to look right into their chest to better understand what was going on in their lungs. Until recently, this dream remained unfulfilled …”
