Portable Tele-Diagnostic Devices
As part of the LINCOS project, we are designing a low cost, portable tele-diagnostic device targeted for widespread use in rural areas of developing countries. By implementing modern sensor technologies, this diagnostic device will allow local health practitioners to easily capture a large range of basic patient medical information. This information (which will be in the form of text, graphics, audio and video) can subsequently be sent via the internet to health centers for diagnosis. In addition to medical data, the device will be capable of forwarding local environmental and meteorological data from remote areas to central locations where it can be monitored and analyzed.
