Töpper wins Science Slam Award 2020 at the Swiss Medtech Day

TOFI® Trainer

The audience of the Swiss Medtech Day voted Tino Töpper Science Slammer of the year 2020 for the presentation of Bottmedical’s R&D project «Tongue fitness training for sleep & speech therapy».

Bottmedical AG, the Swiss deep-tech spin-off from the Department of Biomedical Engineering, is working on launching an innovative solution for snoring and sleep apnea therapies. The TOFI® Trainer is a tongue-machine interface sensitive to the tongue’s position & force. This enables the patient to drive a gamified myofunctional training app with the tongue. It`s a collaborative project of EMPA Dübendorf, Zürcher Hochschule der Künste, University Hospital Basel and University of Basel.
