We have been really busy and excited at the Lab because we are now finishing the first full version of the prototype for the mobile health device for health clinics in Uganda in partnership with UNICEF.
This version, finally includes all the hardware and software capabilities such as GSM/GPRS module, ability to join a specific network and to send SMS text messages to a given server and many more improvements.
The device has an improved flow with many options which include checking for signal and signal strength, ability to set proper cellular band and send free form text messages on top of the diagnosis and patient registration text messages that are pre-formatted by the device itself.
And here’s a video of Device X working. It shows you how to join a server, send a free form text message, do patient diagnosis, pull up a patient record and upload the data. And it speaks British English now!
