Harnessing biosignals for the future

About us

Vivent SARL, a pioneer in harnessing bio-signals, is a Swiss based, privately held company founded in 2012. We are focussed on improving health outcomes of both people and plants utilizing high frequency electrical signals unique to each individual or plant type.

Vivent is developing products and services for two distinct sectors.

The Medical Solutions division is developing products and services for researchers, health care providers and individuals, based on the recording of electrical signals emitted by individuals and the subsequent manipulation and playback of these signals. Vivent’s focus is on non-neural electrical signalling and it has a patent pending on the use of measured electrical signals as the basis for electroceutical therapies. Our pioneering work in plant electrical signalling has given us unique insights into the nature of non-neural electrical signalling in multi-cellular organisms and we believe that particular signal elements may be common to both plants and animals. .

The Plant Monitoring division is developing products and services for academic, agricultural and industrial plant researchers, professional plant growers and plant enthusiasts who want to listen in, and help decode, the language of plants in order to provide growing conditions that result in healthy, vital plants. Expertise in electrical signal recording and processing has been coupled with unique data processing techniques to develop an exciting set of products that will very likely yield fascinating insights into the world of plants. By building on our understanding of what plants are communicating we can better meet their needs and help ensure the ecosystem that supports us all is thriving.
