Phononic Vibes Srl is a Milan-based anti-noise and vibration start-up, developing and marketing innovative solutions based on metamaterials.
Phononic Vibes start-up was founded in 2018 as a Politecnico di Milano spin-off by a group of researchers willing to create a new business starting from the technical knowledge developed at PoliMi and Boston’s MIT in the field of metamaterials, i.e. advanced materials whose acoustic and vibrations control performances are defined by the shape and topology of the unit cell and therefore are independent from the raw material itself.
Based on this innovative technology and the proprietary patents, Phononic Vibes develops and markets solutions to protect against noise and vibration allowing cost reduction, performance increase and other specific advantages (e.g. durability, eco-compatibility, mass reduction) compared to traditional solutions commonly used in the market for acoustic and vibration treatment.
Phononic Vibes is currently consolidating its presence in sectors in which noise and vibration topic is extremely relevant and where metamaterials showed a high innovation potential.
In infrastructures, Phononic Vibes has developed and successfully tested with Deutsche Bahn an underground panel with high performances in terms of vibration reduction; in automotive and appliances, it has built commercial partnerships with international corporates for the application of metamaterials inside vehicles and home appliances; in building sector, it is developing in partnership with major Building contractors an innovative panel to reduce noise disturbance in building sites.
Highly motivated and well balanced co-founders team. Technology and IP well protected. Broad range of applications, in different industry sectors. First successful proof of concept and pilots sold to big corporates.
WISE Srl is a Milan and Berlin-based medical device company developing a genuinely new generation of implantable leads for Neuromodulation and Neuromonitoring.
Currently, WISE is clinically validating its WCS electrode for intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring and completing the development of the SCS Expert lead, the first multi-column SCS paddle lead that can be implanted percutaneously by a Pain Therapist.
WISE’s electrodes are highly ergonomic, conformable, soft and thin, thus allowing great adhesion, minimal invasiveness and excellent adaptability on neural tissues and allowing to overcome the major limitations of today’s technology. They will allow to improve the treatment of patients that are already profiting from Neuromodulation, while at the same time expanding the use of Neuromodulation to fields and clinical indications in which the complex technical demands cannot be met by the current technology.
WISE’s disruptively innovative technology allows to produce electrodes that are strongly attached to the polymer and are stretchable, flexible, biocompatible [medical grade] and allow a very effective stimulation. Furthermore, SCBI allows to embed electronic circuits in foils as thin as a few microns without damaging the foil itself.
Thanks to its technology, WISE will revolutionize the way stretchable electronics is produced, with a wide range of applications in numerous fields, such as Med-tech, Stretchable electronics, Wearable electronics, Optics, Aerospace, and beyond.
WISE’s sound and consistent IP package and the material-based approach originally developed at the University of Milan nicely fits with Eureka!’s goals. The experienced management team and a clear path to the market confirms the high potential of their technology. The excellence in developing the technological platform from research to a product that is ready-to-be-launched, demonstrates that Italian technology transfer deals are feasible.”
