What's in a Name ?
The name is composed of two Japanese words me (pronounced May) and te (pronounced Tay) which mean, respectively,
'eye' and 'hand'. The logo is made up of the Kanji describing the two concepts, eye:
and hand: . The idea for the name comes from the observation
that medicine, for a cerebral profession, is also a hands-on one. Unlike many forms of engineering, doctors actually implement the
things they design. Thus, the concept of the the hand doing what the eye (observation and thinking) mandates. Also, it so happens
that I think the common English phrase hand to eye coordination is the wrong way round : surely it is the eye coordinating
the hand? And the logo is just meant to look like some sort of living being - eye and hand coming together to make a creature !
