There is a telemedicine kit from India for about $200, and there are
other possibilities. I have been encouraged by developments in blood
chemistry measurements that do not require a needle stick. The first
such product is likely to be a diabetic blood sugar meter, but the
process applies to any small molecule with a distinctive spectrum.

I also have friends in the medical software business. There is a Free
Software implementation of the M language and the entire US Veterans
Administration/DoD hospital software system for medical records,
administration, pharmacy, and much more.


Glad to hear of these. Any one of these things can be developed/run around/on the XO ?


thanks
Arjun

Hi Arjun,

I've CCed Sameer Sawarkar of Neurosynaptic. They have successfully
built a remote low cost diagnostic kit ( I think it's called ReMeDi)
that can measure temperature, blood pressure, ECG and heartbeat
(stethoscope) and perform other tasks. It won a prize at the World
Economic Forum 2007. There was an article in businessweek here:

I hope maybe XO and ReMeDi can, in someway, be complementary.

Regards,
jaya

Jaya and Sameer,
That looks very similar to the peripheral I have been working on; for details, you can see reference the page: wiki.laptop.org/go/TeleHealth_Module.
Our pricepoint is slightly lower, but the goal is the same. I am very curious to learn more about your experiences and contacts in the fledgling field of telemedicine.
I have a friend studying in microfluidics at Case University.
You spoke of the 'developments in blood chemistry measurements'; I have also been closely following these developments. One of the features I am currently prototyping is a lower cost version of a "pulse oximeter" which uses the difference in absorption between red and IR light to determine the amount of carbon dioxide in the blood. The pulse oximeter has become standard in many trauma-care institutions.
I have also found a couple of companies that have successfully commercialize the photochromatic determination of glucose levels.

Best wishes,
Ian Daniher
