Descripción
Recently the concept of Open Source Medical Devices (OSMD) has gained some attention, particularly with stunt-like displays of 3D printed prostheses capturing the imagination of the public. In this paper we argue that OSMD technology can be used to propel advancements in healthcare in developing countries in Africa, with equally beneficial consequences in more established economies, provided that the correct framework of training, sharing and safety and efficacy assessment is constructed.We demonstrate how such a framework can be created and show some examples of open-source engineering-based activities which we have conducted. The pros and cons of our approach are discussed in the context of biomedical engineering education, innovation and regulatory harmonization
