To catalyze the Kenyan tech community’s growth.


OS4BME (Open Source for Biomedical Engineering) WorkshopRSVP

  • Venue: iHub
  • Date: Friday 13th September 2013
  • Starts: 2:00pm
  • Ends: 5:00pm

Following the OS4BME (Open Source for Biomedical Engineering) Workshop organised by a team from FabLab Pisa in August at Kenyatta University, Gearbox through iHub Robotics will be holding a similar workshop on Friday, 13th September 2013 from 2pm-5pm at the AkiraChix Office on ground floor (formerly Strut).

The aim of the workshop is to bring the DIY & Makers approach in the developing of simple, low cost and high impact biomedical devices, precisely, in this particular case, an open source neonatal Baby Monitor.

The workshop will involve setting up a 3D printing system, developing a neonatal monitoring device, using open source, electronics based on the Arduino platform and powered by solar panels.

Participants will play an active role in the identification of components, design, assembling and testing of the device and in the discussion of regulatory issues in its development. Close attention will also be paid to safety, ergonomic aspects and regulatory  standards for biomedical devices.

Minimum requirement is knowledge of computer programming.
