IDEAS Project Pitch: One third of all medical equipment repair calls are due to physical and environmental stress. This means that at least one third of all breakdowns are preventable. Our technology solution to predict and prevent equipment breakdowns is to build a low-cost, universal medical equipment monitoring device that gathers information daily about the state of the medical equipment. We will track information such as quality of electric power (current and voltage) and environmental conditions (temperature, humidity, dust). This kind of information would provide insight into how medical devices are holding up in the field, how often they are being used, and what the major drivers of equipment breakdowns are. The data will help us make smarter decisions about what kind of equipment to position in different settings.
