The Hemafuse, from Sisu Global Health, takes the donation and storage barriers out of blood transfusions, recycling a person's own blood back into their body. The low-cost device acts like a large syringe, collecting blood and filtering it internally to remove clots and other particulates. The blood can then be deposited into a blood bag, where it can be pumped back into a patient's body. In emergency situations and during childbirth, blood transfusions are often necessary to save a person's life. But in poor nations, access to a safe, reliable blood supply is relatively rare, leading to preventable deaths each year.
