Over 80% of osteoporosis affected patients in my state don't have good access to basic care for their condition.This is due to the fact over 90% of elderly people in Nigeria don't have cars or good transportation system which will convey them to hospital on time in case of medical emergencies or need to visit hospital.
My idea involve using movable clinics to deliver healthcare services at the homes of elderly people with osteoporosis.The healthcare services will include nursing care, physiotherapy, health counseling, health education and training. The mobile Clinic will be equipped with basic medical service facilities such as handy ultrasound scan and X-ray machines, hospital beds, Resuscitation devices etc.There will be a nurse and a Doctor attached to the clinic. We will have an emergency toll free number which patients call when they need our services
We will also remotely monitor the health and orthopedic profile of the patients.We will do this using a satellite system which will be connected to a sensor that the patient will wear.
