I'm interested in using open source strategies and legislative and regulatory measures to try and encourage increased innovation in orphan medical device areas like prosthetic arms. I'm particularly interested in what measures we might use to encourage industry to take interest in developing and improving such devices, despite the lack of standard business incentive. We all seem to agree that these are interesting and meaningful projects, but how can we afford to actually work on them and deliver meaningful results beyond interesting talks and news magazine pieces?
