UBORA: Euro-African Open Biomedical Engineering e-platform for Innovation through Education

The EU funded project aims at creating an e-platform – UBORA – for open-source co-design of new solutions to face the current and future healthcare challenges of Europe and Africa; by exploiting networking, knowledge on rapid prototyping of new ideas and sharing of safety criteria and performance data.

UBORA e-infrastructure connects the clinical need to the medical device solution.

Projects collaborated on UBORA e-platform

UBORA features a project collaboration tool to guide the process of developing a biomedical device in an open-source manner that is in accordance with the international safety standards. All projects are overlooked by the UBORA certified mentors. You can freely create a new project or join existing ones to start collaborating with the community.

Palpreast

Palpreast is a wearable stretchy top with a pressure sensing textile that is adapted to breast with an inflation system. This system applies an external pressure to simulate hand movement that detects the presence of nodules, which are stiffer than the breast tissue.

Clinical need:
Remote or self-diagnosis
Area:
Oncology

Protective Mask

Different masks designed to help patients with broken nose. In addition, the mask will cover faces with burns and landmine injury from solar radiation and exterior agents. It's apparel is aesthetically pleasing in order to give children more confidence to play with their friends.

Clinical need:
Rehabilitation
Area:
Rehabilitation
Device classification:
I

Portable neonatal warmer

Portable Neonate Warmer (PNW) provides the appropriate thermal protection and temperature monitoring for neonates with hypothermia that are being transported to a health facility from home.

Clinical need:
Monitoring purpose
Area:
Pediatrics
Device classification:
IIa

Breast Pump

Economic and Ecological Breast Pump with Cooling and Preservation System of the Breastmilk. The project consists in a manual breast pump with an air-water cooling system.

Clinical need:
Prevention of pathology or disease
Area:
Pediatrics
Device classification:
IIa

Needs looking for solution

UBORA connects needs to solutions. You can share your ideas and find collaborators on a forum in the form of a discussion. Forum connects the people with real needs to people with ideas how to solve them. Every need can grow out as a useful project to help many people.
