We work with patient partners and with organizations to apply Maker solutions to healthcare. Our workshops focus around designing and generating solutions to different issues faced by patients.


In partnership with Albercook Scientific, we have developed a wearable LED prototype made to display continuous glucose monitor data for patients with type 1 diabetes.
