Uganda software Engineers finally developed a device to recognize Malaria
It is reported that annually 400,000 people died due to malaria. The majority is in South Africa.
There is a need to get rid of malaria. The death ratio in Uganda on its peak due to malaria. For confirmation, the blood test is needed but it also takes time. There are many major frustration issues while you test your blood because there is a need for trained lab experts and they are hard to come.
After facing such problems for decades, a software engineer from Uganda developed a smartphone application with a device named “matiscope”. He said, going to the clinic, waiting in line was a wastage of time.
Therefore, he developed an amazing app with a device with the help of doctors, scientist and software engineers. Matiscope will use red light to penetrate the skin of a finger and detect the red blood cells. This will recognize both normal and infected cells.
He developed an easy, inexpensive and speedy test system for the disease. This system doesn’t need any doctor, blood test and technician.
Moreover, he developed an application for the detection of malaria. Anyone who has malaria in his blood, they just need to keep his finger in this device. The device will recognize the blood cells and show the result on the phone.
If the person has malaria, it can be published on a national grid allowing health departments to keep an eye to crash the disease on time.
This is a real game-changer system that we need in this era. Developer Gitta said it was not easy to develop such an application. He hopes that this application will come worldwide in the next two to three years.
