We have been busy making the patient entry device for health clinics in Uganda and we recently presented a new and improved version to the Innovation Team at Unicef.

The new prototype.

The new version includes many improvements from previous versions, including a full Qwerty keyboard for easy typing, which is covered in silicone to help making it dust and weather proof. It also includes a volume knob, a big on/off central switch, and SD card for local storage of information, 3 buttons ATM-style that are programmable for easy navigation, a 4 line nicely readable LCD screen and a LED power meter to know at all times how much battery life the device has.

On the left side you can see the power button and also a plug for a power supply. Anything between 12V and 20V will work great. It also runs on rechargeable AA batteries.

On the right side you can see the volume knob, flush to the surface, and the LED power meter button with 5 LEDs.

The casing is still temporary but much closer to what the final casing will feel like and look like, a nice sloped casing allows for comfortable typing.

The new prototype while on.

These videos are examples of the new flow and gives an idea of the types of diagnosis it is now programmed to give:
