BME + MSIH Makeathon 2019
This year, we are running a first of its kind makeathon!
The makeathon purpose is to develop low-cost medical devices for 3rd world countries.
At this stage, 4 teams of engineers and medical students presented prototypes which were evaluated by judges from the BME department, Bengis center for entrepreneurship and innovation and from the faculty of health sciences.
The teams will keep developing their devices until the Makeathon final meeting.
We would like to thank all the students that have been working on the devices on their own time, on a volunteer basis.
The First "BiomedTech & Entrepreneurship" annual hackathon took place at "WeWork" Beer Sheva. All the participants were divided into heterogeneous teams of graduate and undergraduate students, as well as medicine doctors. For several hours, the teams were focused on ideas to advance the accessibility of future medicine to the humanity. The winning idea was "The Sniffer"- a breast cancer analyzer.
