Democratize medecine with technological development

The Lab Little Devices develops little lab material for health that can be reproduces (most) everywhere. José Gomez Marquez, from Honduras, leads this MIT lab which is a mix of mechanical workshop, a toy deposit and an innovation center. The Gomez Marquez’s team is dedicated to the development of medical devices to be used in poor countries and complex situations. The genesis of the concept was realizing that most medical devices used in poor areas is given by institutions or governments, and that the devices failed only a few months after. And this, without anybody to fix them or to dare dismantle them to understand how they work.
