The goal is to characterize power quality (frequency deviations, impulses, outages, surges, and sags) across multiple Sub-Saharan Africa countries to design medical equipment that can handle incidents without downtime or hardware failure.
The Center for Innovation in Global Health Technologies (CIGHT) at Northwestern University has recently designed an Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) application on android tablets. The IMCI is a clinical protocol established for health care providers to improve the quality of child care in resource-limited settings. This new app not only walks the healthcare worker through the entire IMCI but it also provides auditory and visual resources to help them conduct effective patient exams.
