The Problem Lack of access to high-quality, affordable medical devices for hospitals and clinicians serving the world’s poor. This healthcare gap results in illness, suffering and mortality, and an ever-spiraling trap of poverty. Specific problems D-Rev currently focuses on: Severe jaundice: In industrialized countries, newborn jaundice (yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes due to excess bilirubin) is usually easily treated with phototherapy (a specialized intense blue light). In developing countries however, phototherapy machines are not nearly as accessible, partly due to costs upwards of US$3,000. Over 6 million babies with severe jaundice are not receiving adequate treatment, according to an assessment by Stanford and D-Rev. When severe jaundice goes untreated, it can lead to crippling brain damage. Prosthetics: In the developing world, trauma, disease, and natural disasters result in hundreds of thousands of new amputees per year. Millions of amputees in low-resource areas do not have access to affordable, high-quality prosthetics that would allow them to lead healthier, more productive lives. Cheap knees can be unsteady, especially a problem for those in low-income environments having to often perform difficult labor and negotiate uneven surfaces and crowded areas.
