A group of BME and other U-M engineering students from M-HEAL are spending their spring break in Guatemala. The Team is trying to figure out how create an easy way for doctors in remote areas to properly diagnose infants born with a malformed heart. An estimated 1,600 infants are born with malformed hearts in Guatemala each year. Untreated, the condition can lead to permanent brain, lung, and heart damage or even death. Follow the team’s progress toward solving this problem by creating a “remote stethoscope” and testing it over spring break on CoE’s LabLog.
Two seniors in BME, Rachel Strauss and Megan Bland, are working to create a simpler, more affordable children’s car seat. The goal is to use the seat in developing countries to cut down on infant mortality related to traffic crashes. Michigan Engineering’s LabLog, recently talked with the socially conscious engineering duo about their ideas.
