CHF 500’000 for Lambda Health System

FIT | 15 May 2020

Lambda Health System has obtained a FIT Tech Growth loan of CHF 500’000 from the Foundation for Technological Innovation (FIT). The start-up is developing a rehabilitation robot for hospitals and clinics, in particular for the treatment of patients after a stroke.

Founded in 2015 and based in Yverdon-les-Bains, Lambda Health System aims to democratize robotic rehabilitation by making it fast, simple and economical. Their first product combines an intelligent robotic structure with virtual reality for the rehabilitation of the lower limbs. Resulting from the collaboration between therapists and engineers from the CHUV and the HES-SO, the product targets patients with neurological disorders, for example after a stroke.

After the conception and the industrialization of an initial product, LHS conducted clinical trials in partnership with the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV), which demonstrated good results. The company subsequently obtained the CE mark and ISO quality certification required for marketing in Europe. Commercialization was launched last year and several devices have already been sold in Switzerland. At the heart of the commercial approach, demonstrations with a mobile showroom allowed LHS to quickly present the medical device to many potential customers.

Composed already of 10 people with experience in robotics, physiotherapy, neuroscience and artificial intelligence, the LHS team obtained numerous supports and distinctions, among which Innogrant, Venture Kick, Genilem or the « Silver Innovation » prize at the European Mechatronic Award.

The FIT Tech Growth loan will enable LHS to support their growth phase marked by the production and marketing of the first devices in Europe. In order to adapt to an evolving market, LHS aims to offer several sales models to hospitals according to their needs.
