RSVT is an ring-shaped product that uses multi-reagents and micro-needle balloons for blood collection to test for the type of snake venom to aid in treatment, solving the problem that the patient is unable to identify the snake species on site, The bracelet is integrated with the packaging, which can be tied to the patient’s elbow after blood sampling for easy identification by medical staff.


Really interesting space for helping find the right anti-venom, immediate diagnosis. Could be used to spiders other venomous creatures...

Would be very useful if it functions. It needs more clarity to communicate that the technology actually works. Why it is it a bracelet?...
