How We're Democratizing Healthcare with Mobile Phones

by Myshkin Ingawale

September 7, 2013

Currently, to get this very cool technology to users, we need to set up the production facilities and also get the required medical device certificates to legally ship these to different countries. To raise funding for this, we set up a crowdfunding campaign. In exchange for contributions, we are promising users their own personal uChek devices, as well as a chance to donate devices to nonprofit clinics delivering subsidized or free care to those in need.

“Democratize healthcare” are two big words. But put simply, we believe that making technologies accessible to everyone to improve health comes everywhere is what it is all about. There is a long way to go, but there is great promise, great potential, in the power we carry in our hands.

This project is featured in GOOD's series Push for Goodour guide to crowdsourcing creative progress.
