Pediatric IV delivery systems are virtually non-existent in third world hospitals. It's very common for children to receive damaged IV lines and inconsistent medication delivery due to the large size of medical pumps.


Our goal was to create a technology for healthcare workers that does not require extensive training. With that in mind, we built a low cost and easily programmable pediatric pump. It allows for healthcare providers to interface with the device through a simple keypad. A stepper motor accurately provides flow rates low enough to provide the correct dosage to children. Our pediatric pump won 3rd place in the EWH Design Competition!
