Entrepreneurship & UBORA

By | June 10, 2019

The UBORA e-infrastructure provides a structured framework for the development of an open source medical device from the identification of the clinical need up to the crowdfunding stage, sustaining the entrepreneurship spirit of BME innovators.

An example of this complete route is represented by Palpreast, a wearable device for breast self-examination. The team, supported by the innovation programmes PhD+ and Contamination Lab of the University of Pisa, was presented in front of a community of investors during the stage of C-Lab tour in Pisa, on 7th June 2019.

The Palpreast Team is creating not only a safe and effective medical device, but also a new business model, which can inspire future projects toward the democratization of healthcare technology.
