Robotic Health Assistant for Rational Management of Fevers among Nomads

Oladele Akogun of the Common Heritage Foundation in Nigeria seeks to develop a "fever kit" for use among nomadic populations to help them accurately diagnose and treat fevers in a way that reduces mortality and drug resistance. The device will be equipped with simple diagnostic tools and prerecorded treatment instructions in the native language to help nomadic caregivers distinguish between malaria and other causes of fevers, and will also contain drug treatments appropriate to the diagnosed illness.
