Welingkar, in partnership with Camera Culture Group and MIT Media Lab (USA) organized a prototype exhibition and open house of redefining diagnostics at WeSchool campus.
The exhibition brought together nearly hundred students, clinicians, entrepreneurs, and investors to address healthcare issues in India. Most promising projects were selected for further development at WeSchool campus.
Innovators will work on development of prototypes for different healthcare solutions with the guidance from researchers.
Dr. Uday Salunkhe, Group Director of WeSchool, congratulated the team and said, “ReDx 2016 is another milestone in our collaborative journey towards creating innovations that aim to provide healthcare solutions for people across the globe. This convergence of design thinking, technology and empathy has created a wonderful platform for stakeholders from diverse streams to get together to design the much needed healthcare diagnostic devices which will have immense social value and impact in the times to come.
During ReDx, Welingkar students have helped transform potentially high impact ideas sourced from health researchers and doctors and transformed them into working prototypes and executable business solutions and we are looking forward to taking them ahead.”
Prof. Dr Ramesh Raskar of MIT Media labs described ReDx as a joint venture between USA and India in a bid to solve healthcare challenges. The collaboration works with number of stakeholders to enable young minds in finding innovative solutions by rethinking, engineering and designing towards executable business solutions.
Some of the prototypes displayed at the open-house were, Apnea Rest Analysis Mask (ARAM), Cardio24, SkinSpect, LightEar, SenseCam, Anterior segment imaging device, Portable pupilometer, EpiMetrics.
