2022 NIMHD Prize for Healthcare Technologies for Low-Resource Settings
Winner: Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis
Project Title: HappyHeart: A Pediatric Handheld Heart Rhythm Monitor
Team Members: Joseph Bustamante, Nate Chesterson, Haley Gill, and Katie Murphy
HappyHeart is an inexpensive and innovative 3D-printed approach to pediatric diagnostic EKGs in clinical settings that will increase comfort, be easier to use, and reduce costs.
The Design by Biomedical Undergraduate (DEBUT) Challenge is a competition that recognizes undergraduate excellence in biomedical design and innovation. The challenge is open to teams of undergraduate students working on novel solutions to unmet health and clinical problems.
DEBUT is supported by NIH and VentureWell and is led by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB). NIMHD partners with NIBIB to support the DEBUT Healthcare Technologies for Low-Resource Settings prize.
