What if you could make a medical device prototype with just a kit that you can take to the middle of nowhere? That's what D-Lab spinoff, Innovations in International Health is working on in a project called MEDIKit (Medical Education Design and Invention Kits). They a series of medical device design kits aimed at empowering nurses and doctors in developing countries to create their medical equipment.
