Social Impact Design

We don’t accept a world in which countless newborns are at risk of lifelong disability and death from easily treatable conditions like jaundice, hypothermia and pneumonia, and where hundreds of millions of dollars in donated medical equipment goes to waste.


An Organization Driven by Outcomes

We are setting the standard for best practice in design for poor communities in the developing world.  We are pushing the limits of technology in rapid prototyping and low-volume manufacturing to bring great design to communities currently missed by commercial markets. Our goal is to deliver a better quality of service, and a better quality of life, to millions of beneficiaries through products designed for our partner social enterprises.
