On the heels of being featured in the New York Times, Dr. Kris Olson was lauded in the Boston Globe as ‘The Man’ of life-saving devices for his work in pediatric medical devices. Dr. Olson leads the CIMIT’s Global Health Initiative as well as a pediatrician at MGH. Under his leadership Dr. Olson oversees a portfolio of technologies including a very successful roll out of a $7 neonatal resuscitation device and an innovative project to make a neonatal incubator our of car parts.
The Boston Globe:
This spirit is embodied in his latest project: the car-parts incubator. The idea, born at Boston University, holds that while it’s great to donate a $30,000 incubator to a hospital in a developing world, the fact is that it’s going to break down, and they won’t know how to fix it. So Olson and his team built an incubator in a way that it could be fixed almost anywhere in the world.
