Who are we?

We are a young company founded and based in Zurich, Switzerland since 2016. The Piomic family consists of biologists, designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, young and young-at-heart individuals as well as a broad group of supporters. Staffed with heterogeneous experts from different backgrounds and a common goal: Developing a therapy which is safe and effective in order to set a better future for patients in need.


Our vision

Life shouldn’t be defined by a medical condition, we believe that good health is essential for everyday life.

Our mission

We develop easy to use, innovative and effective devices to address modern healthcare challenges in wound care by:

  • Performing high quality medical research
  • Focusing on user needs
  • Combining interdisciplinary know-how

This will assure an intuitive and smooth product experience and allow patients to regain control over their health.


The story

With the vision of using physical stimulation for wound healing the two biologists Marc Augsburger and Christopher Hertz decided to found a company. They soon realised the need for an engineer capable building their idea, so the third person to join the duo was mechanical engineer Jari Kruth, a childhood friend of Hertz. Together with serial entrepreneur Jürg Fröhlich, who had led an ETH team researching electromagnetism in medicine and biology, they founded the company Piomic Medical in June 2016, which they still manage today.
