M-PED provided connections to resources in regulatory investigation and intellectual property (including patent searches) that were critical to the development of the Charpie Pediatric Intubation System. The Gap Funding Award is helping me turn the conceptual design into a functional prototype in a collaboration with a local medical device firm.
From Medical Design Technology (mdtmag.com):
"Lori Atkins’ 16-year-old son, Blake, has Type 1 diabetes, and she used to track his blood-sugar readings by hand.
It was time-intensive and sometimes daunting, like the night he had a
cold and “his numbers were going crazy.” Lori paged Blake’s doctor and
sat at a computer, where she wrote a detailed email listing her son’s
glucose measurements over the preceding 12 hours to ensure the physician
had all the vital data.
Now, however, Blake’s glucose readings are available at his doctor’s fingertips...."
