Pioneers and visions
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.
Swisstom AG was founded in Landquart (District of Igis, Canton of Grisons, Switzerland) in September 2009 by Josef X. Brunner, Stephan H. Böhm and Peter Seitz.
Swisstom AG develops innovative medical devices for the monitoring of lung and heart function in ICU patients and patients undergoing general anesthesia. End-users include physicians (primarily intensivists and anesthesiologists) and other health care professionals.
Unlike traditional tomographic methods, Swisstom´s imaging is driven by electrical impedance tomography (EIT). This technology will serve Swisstom as a platform for future product developments.
The company name Swisstom stands for “tomography made in Switzerland.”
