Medical gadgets are cool and they do save lives of other human beings. The vast majority of these devices though are very high-tech, pretty complicated to install and maintain, and requires professional staff to operate it or trouble-shoot the any problems. With that in mind, a cool group took the initiative to design with the poor and remote in mind; they are called MIT’s Innovations in International Health (IIH).

TechnologyReview just announced that José Gómez-Márquez, 32 of IIH, is the 2009 Young Innovator. Check out his video and see the awesome his group is doing.
