Life-cycle!

The École Polytechnique Féderale de Lausanne (Switzerland) and a whole lot of partners have launched a project related with diagnostic imaging in low-resource settings. It’s called Global DiagnostiX and it involves the development and deployment of an x-ray device.

The project has a strong emphasis on the concept of ‘appropriate technology’ (a bit old fashioned) but has other unique points that make it very interesting and innovative, namely consideration for the whole life-cycle of the device, “to make sure that the imaging system is adapted to each step of this cycle and to the different people who will use it.”

In the website there is some information about ongoing research, sponsoring and activities.
