In many parts of the world, hospitals and clinics still sterilize equipment with boiling water -- which doesn't actually work. Dr. James Bernstein demonstrates a new portable, power-independent sterilizer designed for use in the field. The low-cost technology can change essential surgery in the developing world or during disaster response, saving countless lives.
Dr. Bernstein is the co-founder and CEO of Eniware, LLC, an innovative, for-profit healthcare company committed to reducing the global incidence of surgical and healthcare-associated infection by increasing the prevalence of medical instrument sterilization, particularly in resource-challenged healthcare settings. Dr. Bernstein has an extensive resume as a health sector entrepreneur with more than 35 years of experience leading ground-breaking enterprises in the U.S. and abroad.
