January 2012 a group of hardware hackers and makers and academic researchers decided to start a company to make low-cost medical devices. We realized there was a rapidly expanding private medical provider market throughout the developing world that was eager for new devices that could help them provide more efficient and more effective care for their patients.
We also thought medical providers in the US and other mature markets might be interested in some lower cost solutions as well.
We set out to build beautifully-designed, human-centered devices that solve problems. We’ve been at it for a while, and while we had our heads down in the product side of things, somehow our blog disappeared.
So we’re rebooting, thanks in part to the Wayback Machine (I just gave you money, Internet Archive!), but only a small section of our blog was captured, so part of our shared history is lost. But who doesn’t love to re-invent their past?
