Empowering Geriatric with Urine Micro-Albumin Self-Monitoring/Point-of-Care Device for Better Health Management

Old age makes geriatric population vulnerable to non-communicable disorders like kidney disorder, cardiovascular disease, stroke, hypertension and diabetes nephropathy. Micro-albumin concentration in urine is a well-established biomarker for early diagnosis and management of these comorbidities. To address this gap, the current proposal aspires to deploy a novel self-monitoring Point-of-care (PoC) device to bring independent living with minimum health care support in resource limited settings.
