    are you following this young man?!?! You should be. What he’s bringing to the masses is life changing for people of color.

    This isn’t racism, poor design and research yes... lazy engineering.. yes... inconsideration? Probably a little... but believe me nobody at these companies is trying to make a device to exclude anybody. Everyone’s money is green and the moment you follow the money you will really understand how things work in the world

    Thanks so much for sharing this story!! For anyone that wants to read the study about disparities in Pulse Oximeters based on skin color, here's the link: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc2029240. I also talk about disparities in medicine on my TikTok (@joelbervell) and Instagram (@joelbervell)

    It measures in the nail beds where there’s not a huge difference with skin pigmentation. This is reaching a bit.
