Non-Contact Mobile Oximeter for Rapid Birth Asphyxia and Childhood Pneumonia Assessment

In this project, we will develop a mobile phone oximeter attachment that can measure tissue oxygenation without touching the body. This makes it a valuable add on to the pocket of a community healthcare worker in a resource-poor country, helping him/her quickly identify sick children and allocate extremely limited resources to save their lives.
