STIMIT wins Swiss
excellence product award

STIMIT is the winners of the Swiss Excellence Product Award 2022 in the category start-up. This is the 10th time that the jury of the Swiss Excellence Foundation has honored innovative Swiss products.

This year, 30 companies applied with their products for the Swiss Excellence Product Award. The jury visited the shortlisted candidates over the past few months and selected three finalists in each category. The jury evaluated the innovation content, the value creation potential as well as the quality of the business model and the marketing concept.

STIMIT AG was able to prevail in the Startup category with the STIMIT Activator. The innovative product stimulates the diaphragm muscles of intensive care patients - non-invasively - and thus gets patients breathing who would otherwise not breathe. "The product has great potential. It is already being used successfully, and Stimit has chosen a clever strategy for financing it," explains Stefan Philippi, lecturer at the Institute for Corporate Management at the FHNW and jury member of the Swiss Excellence Foundation in his laudation.
