  • Technoganga Lowcost Electromedical Device CBS Responsability Day – 1-09-2009
  • Summary Our goal: • Sell small electro-medical devices for competitive prices. • Raise the quality of the health system in poor areas. • Help other companies and NGOs with similar values to the ours. Our first product is a low-cost heart-rate measure and our geographical area of interest (for the moment) is west-Africa
  • Major causes of Death in west-Africa Neonatal causes 18% HIV/AIDS 4% Diarrhoeal diseases 19% Measles 3% Malaria 20% Pneumonia 23% Injuries 2% Others 11% (WHO Mortality fact sheet 2006). Still unsolved problems there, in fact they are still in the list GOAL 6 of the Millennium Development Goals – Framework for Action U.N.D.P. And related to the reduction of the child mortality (GOAL 4) and the improvement of the maternal health (GOAL 5).
  • We designed some low-cost medical devices, and we believe we can design others
    • e.g. a device for measuring the hearth rate
    • can cost 300-1000$ ( Philips)
    • or just 20$ (redesigned by us)
  • There is a large volume of “potential” customers at the base of the pyramid !!! Poor as active market Poor as an intractable problem where We just volunteer
  • Challenges
    • This is a price-driven approach !!!
    • With the main challenge of beening really creative in designing product,
    • using scarse resourses,
    • and beeing careful of not violating any copyrights.
    • Build a good ecosystem in loco is also important!!
  • ...and greetings from BurkinaFaso. THANK YOU!!!
