Congratulations on the great example of rapid prototyping for human centred design for development contexts!

 

From their FB page:

Exciting times; the first prototype of the ECGF infusion set, a low-cost medical device for administering safe IV-tranfusions, is ready for clinical piloting! DwB has collaborated with the Instrumentation Division at Uganda Industrial Research Institute (UIRI) since February, and the prototype was officially commissioned at UIRIs 10 year anniversary the 24th of October. @pippamak #uiri #designwithoutborders #uganda #design #medicaldevice Paul Büttner Philippa Ngaju Makobore
