The uBox was created by Goutam Reddy and Sara Cinnamon at MIT in 2007. We initially designed the uBox for treating tuberculosis in India with Innovators In Health and the Prajnopaya Foundation. The uBox went on to win the Yunus Challenge to Alleviate Poverty and two years of work culminated in a 200-patient trial at the end of 2008. We knew the uBox could help those in the U.S. as well across a range of medical conditions. However, we quickly found the greatest need around addiction — both prevention and recovery.
