Swiss based electroceuticals pioneer, harnessing biosignals to develop innovative medical solutions and unique monitoring technologies for plant health
Bio-signals and Electroceuticals
Investigations into the role of electrical signals within and around living things whether humans, fish, insects or plants are yielding surprising discoveries. The combination of state-of-the-art electronics and informatics with life sciences is opening up new frontiers in our understanding of life. The team at Vivent is part of this exciting movement.
Vivent focuses on the investigation of non-neural electrical communication. Our patented BESP™ (bioelectric signal playback) system records and plays back the body’s own coded electrical signatures and is being developed for personalised electroceutical therapies.
Plants also have their own non-neural electrical signals. Vivent, through the Phytl Signs devices and data processing is enabling research with the goal of allowing growers to gain unique insights into plant physiology and thereby improve plant health and vitality using leading edge technology encompassed in the Phytl Signs range of bio-sensors.
Our patented BESP (bioelectric signal playback) system records and plays back the body’s own coded electrical signatures. Our hypothesis is that these signals may be used for cellular control and signalling over significant areas of the body. We are currently undertaking theoretical research in this area supported by the DARPA RadioBio program.
Plant lovers, professional growers and plant researchers may all gain unique insights into how plants assess and communicate their “state of health” and how they respond to changes in environmental conditions or to attack by pests or diseases. The Phytl Signs bio-sensors record and analyse electrical signals emitted by plants so we can quickly detect their responses to changes in their environment. Phytl Signs products are being designed to help researchers gain insights into plant physiology and to help growers optimise growing conditions while reducing interventions and inputs.
