TINY TECH, HUMAN IMPACT

TINY TECH, HUMAN IMPACT

THESE TECHNOLOGIES, THOUGH SMALL IN SCALE, GENERATE LIFE-CHANGING, POSITIVE IMPACT.

DIMINUTIVE ONLY IN THEIR DESIGN

 

A heart pump sized to work for more people — even kids. A continuous glucose monitor discreetly tracking your body’s response to food, exercise and more, a round-the-clock assistant rarely seen and only heard from when you set an alarm. An occluder so small it can fix the hearts of the very tiniest babies born with a congenital heart defect, opening the vastness of what life holds ahead. A heart monitor that sits just below the skin, remotely communicating with your doctor so when your heart misses a beat, your care won't. Modest in size, they're helping people around the world reach their ambitions and live their lives on their terms.
