Clinician-designed health technologies have the potential to transform healthcare. Our tools guide frontline teams from idea to prototype to patient impact. Upload an idea, access the tools, learn how to make.
We put the tools to design and fabricate health technology directly into the hands of your frontline teams. From the cardiac surgeon to the patient transport assistant, all employees gain access to world-class resources and personalized learning tutorials to create future health technology.
Our healthcare system is in need of frontline ideas to address big challenges in patient care. Technology is often prohibitively expensive or designed for the masses without the option to customize features for each patient. Clinicians experience these challenges first hand — when delicate infant skin is irritated by the CPAP tubing for breathing support or when an elderly patient is readmitted because they were unable to maintain a rehabilitation program due to a lack of understanding of their spirometer device.
Without investment and infrastructure for clinicians to create, their potential life-changing solutions remain napkin sketches or break room conversations. By putting the tools of design and making in the hands of frontline doctors, nurses and hospital staff, these clinicians can see their ideas come to life. They create solutions that they can hold in their hands and use for patient care.
We work with hospitals to build a culture of experimentation where frontline teams jump to share their ideas and collaborate to build the future of health technology. Hospital staff learn the skills to succeed as health makers and develop agency and creativity in everyday problem solving.
Through guided prototyping journeys leveraging our prototyping genome, we ensure hospitals have the frameworks and protocols to safely move ideas from prototype to patient care.
Limited space? No problem. MakerHealth Create is remote-first, meaning we enable clinicians to create no matter where they are. Alternatively, we can build out your hospital’s very own Makerspace, equipped with cutting-edge creation and fabrication tools in a turnkey package.
