D-Rev

D-Rev is a nonprofit design firm and technology incubator that develops market-driven products to improve the health and incomes of people living on less than $2 per day.

Their mission is to start a design revolution in the way products are designed, marketed and distributed. They enable new sources of income and improved healthcare for people who represent the "other 90%” of the world.

Understanding the local conditions, needs and economic realities of customers is critical to the success and sustainability of any project promoting development in less industrialized economies. They work with trusted fielded partners to understand users and their environments to design revolutionary and radically affordable products. In this way, design can transform lives.

Students collaborated with D-REV on developing solutions relating to the treatment of newborn jaundice (hyperbilirubinemia) in India.
