Presentation

Overview

CloudDX’s device and participation in the Qualcomm Tricorder XPrize international competition traces its roots to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. At the time, Sonny travelled to the country as a physician providing medical assistance and aid. He quickly found that some of the hospitals in the country lacked basic diagnostic equipment, forcing him and other medical workers to build their own makeshift alternatives.

“If you can build something portable, something inexpensive, something mobile… it would instantly empower a physician and help them manage a condition,” said Dr. Kohli, the team lead for CloudDX.
