Jari Kruth

M.Sc. Mechanical Engineering

Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETHZ)

Northener with Finnish-German roots I was born and grew up in Hamburg. Following a short and intensive period in Shanghai, my university studies lead me south, to Zurich. Unfortunately, although a passionate eis hockey and HCD-Fan, I didn’t quite make it all the way down to Davos!

As a mechanical engineer at ETH, I primarily dealt with robotics. From the use of micro-robots in the eye to autonomous systems, I have worked on a variety of topics. My fascination for a subject was always driven by the application in the real environment. In my role as CTO at Piomic, my aim is to design and build a solution for patients and medical professionals in such a way that it allows for easy application to enable smooth wound healing processes.

What do I love about Piomic?
The people. Starting with our team and their dry sense of humor and direct ways to the many open and fascinating people with whom we have the chance to collaborate. From nursing staff who do incredible work every day, to humorous patients and the many experts who are always ready to help.
