Built on a foundation of biomechanical proficiency, Biomechanigg offers a variety of services to our clients, including product evaluation, the assessment of potential marketing claims, and concept development. 


Data Analysis and Signal Processing

A differentiator for Biomechanigg is our ability to work with data. Led by Dr. Vinzenz von Tscharner, Biomechanigg leverages the most elaborate signal processing and analytical techniques to discern insights, develop predictive models, or generate recommendations, all while ensuring that the research questions are thoroughly investigated. Biomechanigg specializes in a variety of data mining and artificial intelligence techniques, including:

Pattern Recognition

  • Principal component analysis (PCA)

  • Cluster analysis

  • Entropy

  • Wavelet analysis

Machine Learning

  • Neural networks

  • Support vector machines (SVM)
