Device X

As a consultant for GRND lab, I designed and fabricated the outer casing to a patient data entry device for health clinics in Malawi and Uganda, a project they are working on for UNICEF. It allows the user to input child’s vital information such as name, weight, height, middle-upper arm circumference and child’s health complications in order to receive a prompt preliminary diagnosis of the child’s general heath and malnutrition level. The device uses auditory prompts as well as written prompts to guide the health care worker through the diagnosis questionnaire and guides him/her through both the registration process for a new patient and the check up on a previously registered patient.

Tools: Fabricated from 1/4 inch plexiglass, cut using a 660 Watt laser cutter. Laser file done in Adobe Illustrator converted to Corel.
