Spin Offs

Through our spin-fund, we support the creation of start-ups from NCCR Robotics research projects.

ANYbotics Logo

The next major step in robot evolution will see robots leave the structured factory floor. This requires versatile and highly mobile mechanical devices to move and act autonomously in unstructured environments, collaborating where needed with humans. For this to become reality, robot capabilities need to be massively improved in three areas: mobility, interaction and autonomy. anybotics.com

 

The Feeltronix breakthrough technology platform stretches the mechanical limits of electronics and provides solutions for robust and ultra-compliant rubber-based systems. Applications include smart bands for the next generation of wearables in sports, healthcare, AR/VR and fashion. feeltronix.com

 

Flyability is a Swiss company building safe drones for operating indoors, in complex and confined spaces, and in contact with people. The company’s main market is in industrial inspection where it avoids sending people in dangerous and confined spaces for the inspection of power generation, oil & gas, maritime and chemical infrastructures. It is also active in search & rescue and public security to assess emergency situations without putting humans at risk. flyability.com

 

Foldaway logo

Foldaway is developing ultra-portable and low cost haptic interfaces that interact with human fingers by tracking their motion and providing force, stiffness and texture perception. foldaway-haptics.ch

 

Fotokite Logo

Fotokite is a spin-off from ETHZürich’s Flying Machine Arena with patented technology that fundamentally solves key problems with traditional drone systems, including safety, flight time and accountability. fotokite.com

 

Changing stroke rehab. Intento has developed an easy-to-use, effective solution to help severely paralyzed stroke patients recover motor function in upper limbs. Even several years after the stroke. intento.ch

MyoSwiss develops the Myosuit: a garment-like set of active and passive layers designed to assist people with muscle weakness when performing movements. myoswiss.com

 

Noonee is a Swiss based exoskeleton company, spin-off of ETH Zürich, founded in 2014 by Keith Gunura and Olga Motovilova. The company is focusing on exoskeletons for industrial application to improve the working environment and assist industrial workers in their daily tasks. noonee.com

 

SenArs mission is to restore complete functionality of upper and lower limb amputees, as well as those that had nerve-damage. The solution SensArs proposes, a neuroprosthetic device, is called SENSY: a unique device, which allows amputees, unlike currently available prostheses, to feel again from missing limbs.  sensars.com

TWIICE logo

Twiice is a modular exoskeleton for walking assistance that allows spinal cord injury paraplegics to regain independence in their daily activities. twiice.ch
