Imen HBIRI from Taiwan - working on the MIT OPV (e-vent)

Imen emailed me asking:

I’m working on the MIT OPV. My question is: there is many OPV, which is the best? are they tested and validated by doctors? are one of these OPV is really used in a hospital? Did these OPV really solve lives or they still in the design phase?

I replied:

From what I’ve seen so far, there is a Rice University version and a version in Colombia that they are about to test in hospitals. We have a team in Bulgaria who’ve built a prototype, but we haven’t seen any implementation files or notes to share yet.

We have had some positive feedback on these from doctors in the UK and NYU, but no official approvals yet.
