Building an Artificial Pancreas Using a Raspberry Pi

The Video Screening Room

DIY health care is here. Open source is providing the ways and means for amazing and affordable advances, like an artificial pancreas built using a Raspberry Pi, and letting people take charge of their health care in the process.

If you love open source, you’re going to love browsing thru the many OSCON 2016 videos being uploaded to YouTube. The one I found most fascinating is this short clip in which Dana Smith explains about an artificial pancreas built using a Raspberry Pi.

Open source often extends new hope and opportunities. In the healthcare field, that hope and those opportunities can make a world of difference to people you and I know.
