A prize from the W.A. de Vigier Foundation for Aïmago
The W.A. de Vigier Foundation has chosen its five best Swiss start-ups of the year. Each one is to receive a venture capital of 100,000 Swiss francs.
The company Aïmago, from the Laboratory of Biomedical Optics at EPFL and installed in the Scientific Park, is the only start up from Western Switzerland to have been awarded this honor. Its innovation: a laser that allows for a real-time visualization of the circulatory system. This system enables a doctor to evaluate, during an operation, if the blood supply to a certain tissue is correct and if the vessels have been properly reconnected. The same principle can be applied to skin grafts, organ transplantations and cardiology. Read the press release here in French.
