When DMI first qualified for the competition the team consisted of 8 members whose vision it was to democratize medical diagnostics. The team has been working on the idea of a realistic Tricorder well before they entered the contest. Since then they have gained some amazing new members from various backgrounds in engineering, scientific and business that helped bring the rHealth Tricorder to life. Every single one brought a unique skillset to the table
After 6 intense weeks of working around the clock, consuming gallons of coffee, endless pizza deliveries, and countless sleepless nights in the lab the team was finally able to celebrate the final submission of the 30 rHealth units to the Tricorder XPRIZE on mid June. DMI is beyond proud to have such dedicated and exceptionally talented people on their team and would like to thank everyone for their tremendous input.
