Open BioMedical Initiative is a global nonprofit initiative supporting the traditional biomedical world, engaged in the development and distribution of Biomedical Technologies

Low Cost

A prosthesis, a microscope, an electrocardiograph or even a hospital managed software can cost tens of thousands of dollars and these are extremely accurate, reliable and technologically advanced.
Bringing the cost of these technologies as low as possible, almost to production cost, we want to allow people, hospitals, medical centres and humanitarian communities to be able to use BioMedical Technologies when other options are not available.

Open Source

All our projects share in every aspects the Open Source philosophy. These projects will be fully accessible in the main documentation as well as in the hardware and software components.
The Open Source approach will provide a detailed information on how these Biomedical Technologies are made and improve their security as well as the one of some other Biomedical Technologies that already present on market.

3D Printable

3D Printers are no longer just the prerogative of companies but also for households. In fact anyone can inexpensively buy them or build them starting fabricating three-dimensional objects.
Many of our projects will leverage this technology so that our devices will become available in places that are sometimes difficult to access, thus eliminating any geographic limits. And also Biomedical Technologies users will also able to create the devices they need as well as personalizing them.
