Anemia is a major -- and completely preventable -- cause of death in children in many places around the world, but the standard test is invasive and slow. In this witty and inspiring talk, TED Fellow Myshkin Ingawale described how (after 32 tries) he and his team created a simple, portable, low-cost device that can test for anemia without breaking the skin.
This year Myshkin is going to demonstrate something more radical to the world for the very first time.
Myshkin is the co-founder and CEO/Janitor of Biosense Technologies, a medical device venture focused on non-invasive diagnostics. He is a TED 2012 Fellow. In the past, he worked at Mckinsey & Company as a business consultant and a researcher affiliated to MIT's Senseable City Lab. He holds a FPM (PhD) in Management Information Systems from the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta and a B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from the National Institute of Technology, Bhopal. Despite recent performance, he remains an ardent but somewhat subdued, Liverpool fan.
