Building a Mobile Midwives' Ultrasound

Beth Kolko of the University of Washington in the U.S. will build on recent research that has revealed that current portable ultrasound devices are often too complex for rural midwives in developing countries to use, and will develop instead a streamlined, inexpensive device with limited functionality, a simplified user interface, and a contextual help system. The prototype will be field tested with midwives in Uganda.
