Ratul Narain 2014 Fellow
Prevent infant deaths and illnesses from hypothermia and temperature related diseases in India by developing a simple and affordable baby temperature monitoring band.
While growing up, Ratul was fortunate to travel to several low-income countries. Seeing firsthand the disparity in quality-of-life that exists, he became determined to do something about it. At Stanford, he became infatuated with health technology and graduated with a BS & MS in biomechanical engineering. Ratul then developed several medical devices for Johnson & Johnson and Embrace Innovations, a medical social enterprise in India. After visiting and speaking with countless doctors, nurses and mothers all over India, Ratul identified a long list of unmet health needs. Now, he founded Bempu, an organization tackling this list through the development of appropriate and affordable health technologies.
