Great medical devices can be affordable. Today, 80% of medical devices are designed for only 20% of the people who need them. To fit tighter budgets and rougher environments, our product design process and company structure are different.

Participant is for-profit
company registered as a Benefit Corporation. Here are a few of our commitments
to social impact.

  • Our products are evaluated by outside experts to confirm
    that they pass international quality standards.
  • We monitor and report the actual efficacy of our products.
    Our participants tell us if we are succeeding!
  • Our management is evaluated by our board using
    environmental and social metrics - as are all employees.
  • All products have lifecycle impact assessments. We do not
    do ‘planned obsolescence’.
  • 5% of our profits are donated to our non-profit partners
    so they can serve more people.
  • We all participate in the company's success. All employees
    are owners regardless of where they live.
