Klewel at the Parc Scientifique EPFL: zoom in the Swiss venture leaders 2011
Since September 2010, Klewel is starting to beta-test its new product consisting of a multimedia capture station linked with a web portal to enable anyone to publish events such as conferences and lectures.
Our current Beta-Testers are:
- EPFL, Ecole Polytechnique Federal de Lausanne (examples of lecture webcast)
- Parc Scientifique EPFL (example of webcast, start-up weekend day 1, start-up weekend day 3), Venture Kick (see below)
- IFJ TechnoPark Zürich
- ACM Association for Computing Machinery
A few days ago, the presentations of the Swiss venture leaders 2011 team took place at the EPFL Rolex Learning Center:
More about the 2011 Swiss venture leaders team:
DistalMotionproduces and commercializes a new surgical device that enables the performance of minimally invasive procedures in the abdominal cavity. It merges the advantages of single port surgery (single incision, navigation inside the body) with the advantages of robotic surgery (higher degrees of freedom, increased intuitiveness) and conventional laparoscopy (force feedback, high payload capacity). This is achieved by the use of a new mechanical design, able to provide sufficient dexterity, precision and payload capacity to actuate micro-manipulators.
Aeon Scientific AG:
Aeon Scientific is developing a technology for electromagnetic guidance of microobjects. Our focus is on wireless control of microinstruments within the human body in order to enable new diagnostic and therapeutic methods.
