  • Current implementations
  • SAM Severe acute malnutrition (SAM) affects millions of children under 5 years of age and contributes to more than 1 million child deaths in the world each year. When malnutrition is diagnosed early and treatment is readily available, these child deaths can be prevented. Device X addresses the challenges of collecting critical medical data while assisting in early detection of SAM. Device X Kampala, Uganda December 14th 2009 GRND Lab
  • Due to the high demand, overwhelmed CHWs and understaffed clinics struggle to provide accurate diagnosis and treatment to every patient.
  • Device X guides CHWs through a detailed questionnaire that, in this specific case, addresses child’s level of malnutrition, signs of edema, and any other health complication present, in order to compute an accurate diagnosis.

  • In the current system, high volume paper data has to physically travel to its destinations resulting in long delays that cause serious consequences.
  • Device X stores the users’ input data locally and formats it in a way that can be easily uploaded and interpreted once a network reception is detected.
  • It uploads all the stored data, via SMS, onto a centralized database that allows for real time monitoring and allows to analyze the ‘bigger picture’ to make more informed decisions.
  • Mothers today have to travel hours or days to reach health clinics, they often have to miss days of work and leave part of their families behind.
  • Device X allows for remote monitoring so that families can travel less and health care workers can provide diagnosis and treatment to patients remotely.

  • Collecting data from remote locations that possibly lack network coverage and/or electricity is extremely challenging.
  • Device X allows for data to be stored and uploaded, so that it can travel more rapidly to its destination and trigger more immediate and focused action.

  • It’s important to introduce solutions that build on existing infrastructures and processes and that do not disrupt the users’ current work flow.
  • Device X allows to register new patients or follow up on existing patients, to assess the status of children’s health while making recommendations on what inpatient, outpatient care or other treatment is necessary.
  • It aims to replicate the current flow, while making it more intuitive by allowing the user to answer the questions with the simple press of a button.
  • Device X can schedule follow up visits and, if the family owns a mobile phone, it can send reminders to make sure no child is left behind.
  • Other applications
  • It can be customized for many different environments: it can be employed as an educational tool, as well as for data-logging applications in schools.
  • It can be used to track and keep inventories of various supplies. Device X is extremely versatile and can be adapted to many different uses.
  • Prototyping process
  • Further research
  • usability. how can the current process be replicated and improved? what are the challenges the user encounters today and what are their needs?
  • electricity. what form of electricity is available, if any? what are the best recharging practices for the intended environment?
  • network. what coverage is available? how to build relationships?
  • Future implementations
