Engineering Health

Meet another engineer who’s innovating to improve global health: Richard Fletcher, director of the Mobile Technology Group at MIT D-Lab, uses smartphones and connected devices to address health problems from diabetes to addiction. He’s developed wearable sensors for children with autism and is collaborating with an Indian yoga school to develop mobile tools that relieve patients’ stress and pain.
 
“Most mobile health apps have never been validated or tested clinically,” Fletcher says. “But our group is trying to change that, and demonstrate that mobile technology can be a powerful tool to positively impact people’s health.”
