Bringing affordable medical devices to the World (Health Summit)

Many crucial medical devices are beyond the reach of patients throughout the world. We believe that an open source approach to medical hardware design will engage communities of developers and produce simple, practical and innovative instruments. Local development, customized production and global education will be encouraged, ultimately resulting in better, sustainable health care for patients throughout the world.

And that is the message we will be presenting at the World Health Summit 2016 in Berlin, Germany this year, where our open source imaging initiative was selected by the M8 Alliance Scientific Committee as one of 10 winners for best abstracts.
