About us...

An interdisciplinary team of young researchers motivated to close the gap between industry, academia and the clinic to bring rehabilitation to the next level.

Learning from patients...

All our research projects are developed and carried out in constant interaction with patients, caregivers, and clinicians.

Where we are...

We work adjacent to the cereneo Center of Neurology and Rehabilitation in Vitznau and Hertenstein. Both world-class clinics are located directly at the Lake Lucern in the middle of Switzerland.

Cutting-edge technology

We provide access to cutting-edge technology, including the movement lab CAREN, a 3.0T MRI, a taste lab, various IMU sensor systems and a variety of therapeutic devices of all disciplines.
