The Right.Brain Foundation
PROVIDING MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY AND EDUCATION TO DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
As Brainlab celebrates 25 years of medical technology innovation, the company expands its reach beyond the walls of its corporate office and the 80 countries currently served to include select developing countries in need of the right medical technology to make a difference. This initiative, the Right.Brain Foundation, was a long standing vision and mission of Stefan Vilsmeier, President and CEO, Brainlab. Right.Brain will provide medical technology and education to selected hospitals and public institutions in Southeast Asia, Africa, Central and South America. These countries were selected based on several criteria including: per capita income, reliable energy supply, adequately trained healthcare professionals; keeping in mind the distribution of wealth, political stability and safety of the country. Right.Brain will partner with hospitals and physicians in North America and Europe, building an exchange program to help teach the physicians in developing countries how to use the technology effectively. Furthermore, Brainlab employees will donate in a variety of ways to support the cause; providing vacation time to offer additional on-site training and support to the local hospitals, donating frequent flyer-miles, and monetary contributions.
