Third World Healthcare
Krista Donaldson Keynotes - The keynotes by Krista Donaldson look at the ways the third world has failed, and she describes...
Donaldson tells the story of an Indian amputee and discusses his options of artificial limbs. Her organization focuses on creating custom-scaled artificial limbs that provide stability for a fraction of the price of other solutions.
These artificial knee replacements have been designed to scale, can be mass produced and cost $80. This organization has fit over 3000 amputees and is providing many other medical innovations. D-Rev's philosophy is to create products that are on par or better than the latest medical products available in developed countries. Their products aim to be market-driven and affordable for everyone. Donaldson hopes to shift the boundaries of medicine by paving the way for healthcare solutions that can be accessible for everyone.
