Come play with DIY Health Technology made at MITs Little Devices Lab. Devices include: legos detecting virus, Arduino shields for diagnostics, and pop up clinics. We'll bring tools and medical makers and we can make health
Makers and Health are a match aimed to make together so more people can get better and stay better. Our group took a deep dive into medical making at the American hospital and home bedside for our MakerNurse project and created a set of tools and resources open to anyone who wants to learn and generate a medical maker project. In this panel, a medical maker lab, a public health foundation, and a nurse share MakerNurse Create, an online community that invites makers to contribute their own medical making projects and learn how their contributions can impact bedside care. Join as we hack the black boxes of medical technology to improve health.
