Engineers in the US have produced child-safe batteries with a special coating that stops them causing harm if they are swallowed.
Small, button-shaped batteries can be easy to swallow and cause thousands of injuries every year, some fatal.
Our heartiest congratulations to Girish and Julien for their outstanding performance at this year’s BWH Hackathon 2014.
Great job guys!
The BWH Hackathon in collaboration with the Brigham Innovation Hub and MIT Hacking Medicine will bring together inventive, forward-thinking minds to change the status quo and create disruptive solutions in healthcare today. The event will bring together a diverse, multidisciplinary group to “pitch” problems impacting healthcare, develop solutions over a two-day period, and then present demos of solutions to a panel of judges for recognition and honors.
