We have registered a not-for-profit association. We have some more administrative things to do to get it all ready for action, but it is underway.
Our aim is for this association to:
- develop and manufacture effective and low-cost light devices
- make the devices available for purchase through the association
- put all profits and donations into medical research – randomised case studies are the gold standard, but they are expensive things to run.
Initially all the light devices (including Elizas) we make will be given away through the association. Currently we give them away on a personal basis, but very soon, the light devices we make will be a gift of the association.
We are currently working on different models of light hats, and when we think we have identified the best we can do, we will seek funding for the development of a light hat that looks, um, civilised. Eliza bucket hats have been a great way to prototype our ideas and adapt findings from ongoing research, but they are not aesthetically pleasing…
