Welcome to the list!
Others more familiar will respond with information about exploratory and
mostly educational activity projects with the XO for health or medicine.

At least 2 groups have plans to integrate XOs into disaster recovery
operations.  The Hastily Formed Networks Research Group at the Naval
Postgraduate School has a project,
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Projects/XOs_for_HADR, underway.  And Professor
Sonstein at the Rochester Institute of Technology,
has a group working on upgrading the software architecture of Sahana and the
XO to allow them to self organize during disaster recovery operations.

Having robust and certified medical peripherals would be most welcome!
