Who we are

Capskin AG is a start-up company based in Zurich, Switzerland. It was founded as a spin-off from ETH Zurich in 2020. Capskin sensor and AI technology comprise novel thin, wearable sensors that can measure pressure, shape, and motion. The sensor data is interpreted and displayed by the Capskin Studio Software. The first product is the Capskin Sensor Sock, which can measure in-shoe pressure all around the foot.

Our sensor and AI technology enables ergonomically better fitting products. Thereby we improve human performance and well-being substantially and reduce waste and emissions generated by wrong purchases.
