MedDev Central is a platform owned and operated by Limeburners Bay International (LBI), a social enterprise promoting sustainable medical technology innovation.

Healthcare organisations globally face a common challenge: To provide equitable access to high-quality services at an affordable cost.

At LBI, we are driven by a singular vision: revolutionising healthcare through sustainable medical technology solutions. We understand that equitable access to quality healthcare is not just a goal but a global imperative. Our journey is dedicated to bridging the gap and ensuring innovation reaches those in need.


Our vision is a world where innovative medical technology catalyses transformative healthcare solutions, breaking down barriers and fostering global health equity. We envision a future where cutting-edge advancements are harnessed to uplift communities, improve lives, and create a sustainable and inclusive healthcare ecosystem for all.


Our mission is twofold: to revolutionise healthcare in low-resource settings through innovative technology and business models and to do so in a way that respects each community's unique challenges and resources. We are committed to enabling sustainable medical solutions that empower healthcare providers, improve patient outcomes, and uplift communities, while minimising our ecological footprint.

Focus on Low Resource Settings

Access to quality, affordable, and effective medical devices is a prerequisite to achieving universal health coverage (UHC).

More than 2 million medical devices are available for disease prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. However, global access is constrained by a series of complex, interrelated challenges affecting every stage of the product lifecycle from R&D to commercialisation, health technology assessment (HTA) and management. Barriers to accessing health technologies impairs sustainable healthcare service delivery to patients.

MedDev Central is an open-access, lightweight, mobile-first digital platform designed for low-resource settings offering solutions addressing different barriers to medical device access, including knowledge, training, tools and services.
