Student internship (Engineering)

Development of custom and bio-inspired test equipment


Aesyra SA is a start-up that develops smart oral appliances for monitoring and treating sleep disorders like bruxism and obstructive sleep apnea. Continuous improvement of our testing methods is of key importance to deliver safe and reliable products, as these devices operate inside the mouth, where they are subject to the chemical action of saliva and mechanical forces of mastication.

The goal of this student project is to develop and characterize new automated test machines that can simulate the stresses applied by the oral environment to appliances such as AesyBite in order to study solutions that can improve their safety and extend their service life.

Your profile

  • Master student in mechatronics/robotics engineering or related fields
  • Basic knowledge of mechanics CAD and manufacturing methods (3D printing, CNC)
  • Basic knowledge of Python programming

Your tasks

  • Collaborate with the engineering team to refine the requirements of the system
  • Design and procure prototypes
  • Characterize the system performance in laboratory


  • This internship project offers you the opportunity to experience working in a start-up environment and collaborating with a multidisciplinary engineering team
  • You will gather technical experience on the design and testing of wearable sensors and you will be exposed to many aspects of medical device development
  • The solutions you will develop may be used to test actual commercial products and have a real impact on the quality of sleep of thousands of people

The project will be carried out entirely at Aesyra SA in Bussigny (VD), Switzerland.

Project responsible: Pietro Maoddi, PhD
