At Glia, we believe in creating and sharing hardware that is easily accessible and can be manufactured in low-resource settings. Hundreds of our devices are already in use around the world.
Our open source stethoscope is research-validated to operate as well as a Littmann Cardiology III, but can be produced using 3D printed parts for a fraction of the price.
Our open-source face shield is used to protect users from droplet exposure, and can be created with a 3D printer and basic supplies.
Healthy hearing is an important factor in learning and living, and the otoscope is tool used in the provision of hearing healthcare.
Our tourniquet functions better than expensive devices, but can be produced using 3D printed parts for a fraction of the price.
Aerosol-Reducing NIV Mask
Our Aerosol-Reducing Non-Invasive Ventilation Mask uses off-the-shelf and 3D printed components to minimize risk of virus exposure, such as COVID-19, to healthcare workers in hospital settings.
We're Working On it
These are the projects that we currently have in the research stage. Want to contribute? Contact us.
This device helps to remove excess water, solutes and toxins from the blood of patients with kidney problems. The Glia team will begin research on this device in 2019.
This device allows for the non-invasive measurement of an individual’s oxygen saturation. The open source pulse oximeter is about to begin clinical trials.
This device records the electrical activity of the heart. The first prototype of our open source electrocardiogram (ECG) is near completion.
