Who is Elizabeth Holmes and what is The stall based on?

The stall tells the story of Elizabeth Holmes, who founded the former start-up Theranos. After dropping out of Stanford University, Holmes set out to build a company that could revolutionize blood testing by innovating the way blood was collected and tested, thereby reducing healthcare costs.

When the product, named the Edison Device, was released, the company made a number of claims about its capabilities, including that it could run over 300 tests on a single machine. Official documents regarding the company also claimed that it had the support of medical giants, Pfizer and GSK.

The only thing was that none of it was true. The Edison machines could only run about eight tests, they had never been approved by Pfizer or GSK, and after being deployed in 40 different Walgreen stores, they produced inaccurate results for its users.

After the the wall street journal released a shocking exposé of the inaccuracies, a federal investigation led to Holmes’ indictment where she was charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and nine counts of wire fraud.

To this day, Holmes vehemently denies these allegations, saying she was unaware that the technology developed by her company was unreliable and inaccurate.
