Integrated, Affordable and Accurate Diagnostic Device for Under Five

Pavan Dadlani of Philips Research in The Netherlands will create a single device that can support a better diagnosis of pneumonia in children under five years old in low-resource settings. They will complement their Children's Automated Respiratory Monitor to enable the measurement of oxygen saturation (pulse oximetry) with a single probe to accommodate all ages between 0 and 5 years old, which will lower costs. The device will also be able to transmit data via Bluetooth for recording and expert analysis, and will be designed for robustness. Prototypes will be evaluated on children under five and compared with the current standard methods.
