Made in Switzerland

Why is Distalmotion based in Switzerland?

Switzerland is recognized for its world class precision and high technology products. Many of the global medical device companies have research and manufacturing facilities in Switzerland.

The reason is simple: access to the best-in-class innovations and highest manufacturing quality. This is specifically relevant for medical devices – where patients matter most.


Invented at the EPFL in Lausanne, the Distalmotion technology combines the affordability of a laparoscopy with the benefits of robotic solutions. Distalmotion is a spin-off from the Laboratoire de Systèmes Robotiques (LSRO) Group headed by Prof. Hannes Bleuler, which continuously gives us access to the latest innovations and know-how in robotic technology.

We combine the innovativeness of Swiss research with the production precision and quality in Switzerland, to commercialize a truly Swiss surgical robot, Dexter.



  • Allow hospitals to do more Minimally Invasive care
  • Enable surgeons to access robotic surgery
  • Provide Affordable Innovation
  • Create an appealing workspace in a dynamic team with disruptive robotic technology



Distalmotion is led by a team experienced in building successful medical device companies.
