The National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance (NCIIA) is hosting their 16th annual Open Minds showcase this Thursday, March 22 at the Hub Bay Area in San Francisco. The Open Minds showcase is a chance for teams of graduate and undergraduate students to show off early prototypes of their promising inventions. Last year’s showcase included concepts such as a CPAP ventilation system for infants, a disposable continuous glucose monitoring patch and a new vaccine storage solution.
This year we have some exciting inventions to praise and critique including a low cost phototherapy solution for infants with jaundice in India, a more efficient and effective punch biopsy kit and some innovative new wheelchair designs. Medgadget had the opportunity to interview several of the teams involved, and we will be posting coverage throughout the week, so stay tuned.
