  1. 1. Technoganga Lowcost Electromedical Device CBS Responsability Day – 1-09-2009
  2. 2. 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
  3. 3. 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).
  4. 4. We designed some low-cost medical devices, and we believe we can design others <ul><li>e.g. a device for measuring the hearth rate </li></ul><ul><li>can cost 300-1000$ ( Philips) </li></ul><ul><li>or just 20$ (redesigned by us) </li></ul>
  5. 5. 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
  6. 6. Challenges <ul><li>This is a price-driven approach !!! </li></ul><ul><li>With the main challenge of beening really creative in designing product, </li></ul><ul><li>using scarse resourses, </li></ul><ul><li>and beeing careful of not violating any copyrights. </li></ul><ul><li>Build a good ecosystem in loco is also important!! </li></ul>
  7. 7. ...and greetings from BurkinaFaso. THANK YOU!!!
