ADEPT Summer 2017 Summary

The ADEPT team, using a human-centred approach, worked on the development of an electronic device that aids in the diagnosis of lower respiratory tract infections in rural health clinics in Ghana through accurately monitoring a patient’s breathing rate. The team went through stages of problem identification, user research, development and discussing potential ways of implementing the product.

The teams worked virtually using social media platforms and collaborative web tools such as Google Drive, RealTime Board and Skype to work from two different locations.

The ADEPT team developed some prototypes which were then taken to potential users at the health facilities in Ghana. From feedback they got from their tests, they were able to gather information on the necessary improvements to the product and how they can scale up and roll it out to the communities in need.
