This project began with the goal to develop and design Biosense’s ToucHb non-invasive anemia diagnostic tool. In-depth contextual research within India was done to push Biosense’s diagostic tool...
Non-Invasive Anemia Screening Tool - This past spring I traveled to India with a team of students from Delft University of Technology to develop and design a tool for non-invasive anemia testing in developing countries. Our team is collaborating with Biosense Technologies to develop a non-invasive, portable, sustainable, culturally accepted, and reliable screening device.

Meeting with Asha health worker in Rural India - Contextual Research included visits with health workers of varying skill levels (Ashas, nurses, doctors) and in different environments including rural villages (Ashas, primary health centers), NGO's, and private doctors (who worked in both urban and rural settings).
We also met with distributors to discuss allocation of medical devices within India, held product strategy meetings, and lived with a family in a rural village for a short time.
Final ToucHb non-invasive anemia testing device and carrying case. Case holds extra batteries, mini USB cord for downloading patient records, and finger probe. Device can be used while still in case to minimize wear and tear on the finger probe.
