Salvia is a young innovative start-up company active in the emerging field of “BioElectronics” that is inspired by biology and electronics to provide innovative therapeutic solutions. The name Salvia is derived from the Latin word salvere, which means "to stay healthy".​ We are driven to deliver bioelectronic solutions that restore health for people suffering from severe neurologic disorders; our ambition is to make these novel therapies widely accessible.

The Salvia team consists of experienced entrepreneurs, engineers and scientists with diverse professional backgrounds and proven track-record throughout the medical device industry (Sapiens, Medtronic, Philips, St Jude, BioSensors International, Kyphon, etc).



The human body is controlled by patterns of electrical impulses transmitted through nerve fibers. In chronic disease, these electrical patterns are different.

Bioelectronics are smart devices that use mild electrical impulses to influence nerve activity. Electrical stimulation is nothing new – cardiac pacemakers have been in use for decades – but scientists are just beginning to realize the possibilities of regulating nerve signals to actually treat disease.



Only great teams make lasting impacts…

At Salvia we are always interested in getting to know highly motivated and talented individuals to strengthen our R&D team. Whether you are an experienced professional, an intern, or you're just starting your career, feel free to contact us if you aspire to make an impact to the Bioelectronics field.
