Rice University's Beyond Traditional Borders
program has developed an OB/GYN Lab-in-a-Backpack. This well-packaged idea was tested in 2009 in Guatemala and Nicaragua and we will track its commercial availability. A portable stirrups board/attachment is one very innovative device within the backpack--and importantly this device can be made in country.
Yvette Mirabal of Rice 360 writes "The OB/GYN Backpack contains the essential supplies to perform 100 well-woman exams. It contains items to perform a Pap smear, prenatal, and syphilis testing as well as a glucometer, urinalysis strips, essential lighting, and portable stirrups.
