After the realization of the first prototype, we spent a lot of time in 2019 and early 2020 presenting our project and looking for partners.

From the presentation in a nursery school to maker events through exhibitions dedicated to health, we were able to meet potential users, makers and contributors giving us their opinion and wanting to take part in the project.

The search for a sponsor also took time and allowed us to find the money to buy prototyping equipment, allow the hosting of interns and make the project sustainable.
The challenge now is to face an increase in costs to test our device in good conditions, to continue its development and to certify the device (testing in laboratories) in order to comply with the regulations in force
