Introducing our DripClip

Please support our Indiegogo campaign!

We’re working hard on lining up all the pieces to produce our first prototype in volume for field testing. The Drip Clip is an alternative to expensive infusion pumps, and it’s a way to get precision measurement for IV bags.

The idea for the Drip Clip came from a physician who works with Doctors Without Borders. We’ve discussed it with lots of docs who work around the world, and we’ve done a demo for surgeons, pediatric nurses, and anesthesiologists in Kenya.

We went through a few revisions of the prototype, improving the robustness and reliability. Our bench testing system (below) has been a key part of our engineering, and we’ve worked to improve robustness and reliability.

Our next step is to get it into the field and see how it performs.

You can help make this happen by supporting us on IndieGoGo! Or, just watch the video describing our process.
