St Andrews Medical Innovations Ltd represents the commercial arm of the Arclight Project, a social enterprise based in the School of Medicine at the University of St Andrews.
Our aim is to help organisations working in low-resource settings to equip, train and empower health workers of all grades to confidently diagnose and manage eye and ear disease.
To do this, we develop and produce a range of low-cost, simple yet powerful eye and ear healthcare devices. Our innovative and simple designs are affordable, easy-to-use and reliable and along with targeted learning ensure that users can make on-the-spot decisions themselves.
Profit from sales of our products in higher resource settings funds distribution and training in regions where disease is greatest yet access to tools the least.
Our team is made up of active clinical practitioners, designers, artists and inter-professional education experts. Many years of hands-on workshops using simulation tools in low and middle-income countries have helped us refine and tailor teaching to the actual needs of those working on the ground.
This pragmatic and focused approach has slowly and steadily led to worldwide adoption of the Arclight. Over 30,000 devices have been distributed and are being used every day by students, rural health workers, nurses, GPs, vets and experienced hospital specialists alike.
