The international accelerator of hardware-led social innovation has supported and funded over 190 startups from more than 30 countries.
The three prototypes each provide a sustainable solution to issues in their respective industries — which range from healthcare to farming practices. The “InoHeal” solution from Inochi Care is a multi-therapeutic wound healing technology that creates and maintains the optimum healing environment at a wound site, stimulating the biological responses leading to improved wound healing outcomes. Open MedDev’s “Insuflo” is an affordable, open-loop insulin pump for type-1 diabetic patients in resource constrained settings. The “DHIVARAMITRA” from Think Raw India is an integrated solar power-operated floating device for fish and prawn farming, that helps in the uniform distribution of feed and maintains uniformity of dissolved oxygen level and desired pH levels in a body of water.
The three winners were chosen from eight finalist teams of social innovators from India. They will be awarded $30,000 in seed grants and technical support to produce their creative inventions.
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) ISHOW annually connects individuals and organizations developing innovative products that create positive economic and social impact with experts and resources to gain access to industry networks and help market their products.
The ISHOW has supported and funded more than 190 startups from more than 30 countries that are inventing products to solve global challenges, and is supported by The Lemelson Foundation.
