A little twinkle in our life...

Courtesy of the uBox!

This is from a battery and charger test back in June, but it reminded me of Christmas...  Wishing everyone the happiest of holidays, warmth, love, and nourishment.  We couldn't do it without you!

Love, Abiogenix

Boring but important

It hasn't been very exciting around here lately... Just the critical drudge work involved in testing, weeding out bugs, prepping accounting systems, lining up shipping facilities and component supply chains, packaging, manuals, support systems, failsafes, and regulatory compliance. Whee!  We've been at it more than full time for most of the year, so maybe we'll take it easy over the holidays and enjoy time with the family.

We are so thankful for everyone who has supported us and continues to help us on our way.

Happy Thanksgiving from Abiogenix!

Demoing at Health 2.0!

I demoed the uBox at the Health 2.0 Conference in Santa Clara today, on a panel called "Improving Outcomes Through Adherence."

It was a rapid-fire 3-minute walk-through of setting up the uBox with our app, to a room of about 50 people. A lot of great people came up to me afterwards to learn more about the uBox and give their feedback, both positive and constructive. I think a few partnerships may have been started!

I think my favorite panel (besides my own) was the session on Digital Health for the Underserved.  Thought-provoking and inspiring! I also met a lot of interesting companies on the trade show floor, and look forward to building those relationships as well.

UPDATE: Health 2.0 has uploaded video to their website!

Proud parents!

After much testing and debugging and incubating, Sara and Greddy are the proud parents of 50 uBoxes!

You are finally ready to leave the nest, so fly little uBoxes, fly!

The company that burns together, earns together!

Greddy and I decided to take a "company retreat" to Burning Man this year! No, company funds were not used... Unfortunately, it is not a write off... But we still had a great time on the playa, and came back energized to keep putting in the long hours getting uBox out in the world!

Outsiders in Healthcare... I'll fit right in!

I am going to a mixer at the Practice Fusion offices in SF sponsored by XX in Health.  Today's topic focuses on outsiders in healthcare, a concept to which I can heartily relate!

As a mechanical engineer, I have not been through med school, worked in clinics, or been totally familiarized with policies and regulations most providers deal with every day (yet).  However, I can take my engineering approach to learning to really understand the problem of adherence -- the complex interdependent variables, the network effects, the difference between theory and reality and why rigorous testing is a requirement. It's a complex, ever-changing problem, but I'll apply my experience in product design, robotics, and artificial intelligence and see what happens.

Maybe being an outsider is what it takes to see a new solution...
