What if we could leverage our collective creativity to meet our most urgent needs in health and healthcare? What if clinicians could redesign medical devices to address basic problems? What if individuals, caregivers, or health care professionals could tweak or even re-imagine the medical equipment and assistive technology they use or administer every day?
A growing community of problem solvers within and outside of government are doing just that. Inventors today are also bringing unique experiences and skills in user-centric design, engineering, materials science, computer programming, or simple good old fashioned ingenuity and coupling it with an equally unique understanding of problems that impact the quality of our lives.
Invent Health celebrates those who are creating completely new devices as well as those improving or finding new uses for physical objects that already exist (think: MacGyver for health).
