Our history and our company

VST is a young start-up formed by people with substantial experience in the field of Bioengineering

VST was created from extensive research in the Elastyc laboratory at the Department of Life Sciences, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. Over the past 10 years the research group, directed by Prof. Fonda, have identified physiological parameters that generate an increase or decrease of mental or physical performance. The development of an autonomous technology, able to indicate a person’s state of well-being by a simple touch, led to the creation of ButterfLife. Real time information of 5 vital parameters (definition of the WHO “health status”) “at a touch” plus parameters related to the central and autonomous nervous systems.

Prof. Sergio Fonda

Presidente e fondatore di VST srl

Sergio Fonda comes from a long career at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, from 1974 when he moved to Modena from his Trieste where he graduated in Electronic Engineering, with an application in the field of Physiology, for a position as assistant in Physiological Optics at the Ophthalmology clinic of the Polyclinic of Modena. In the following years he moved to the Department of Biomedical Sciences section of Physiology of the same university and began his research on physiological signals coming from man. Since 2000 he began his studies on the interaction between the autonomic nervous system and the central nervous system, through the study and interpretation also using advanced statistics on physiological signals.

With infinite time any problem has its own solution …

Time… the most precious, modern commodity needs not be wasted, and with health updates in real time without annoying or confusing objects, time can be optimized.

Ing. Matteo Corradini

Amministratore delegato e fondatore di VST srl

Matteo Corradini graduated in Engineering Informatics from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, and remained at the University as an informative technician in the Department of Biomedical Sciences. An expert in scientific instrumentation and computer science, Matteo has participated in numerous research projects in the field of bioengineering, focusing all his studies on the creation of new equipment for the acquisition of various physiological signals (ECG, PPG, EOG, EEG, NIRS, Evoked potential). In 2015, together with Prof. Fonda, he created VST following years of experience in creating technologically advanced devices and his participation in the European Artemis project. “D3COS”.

The idea of creating an autonomous device capable of enabling objective self-monitoring of vital parameters came alive.
