Great idea - this reminds me of another medical device designed for the wrist that researchers at MIT Media Lab are using to detect seizures for patients with epilepsy:

Chris commented on Solar Lights: Good for the Environment and the Wallet

Thank you! I hope the community can learn from this example.

Dear Barbara, thank you for proposing such a holistic solution to public health issues in rural communities. I wonder if your proposal would be best executed by community health workers, given the level of expertise that is required?

Also, I would encourage you to seek out Living Goods as a possible partner; LG is a social enterprise in Uganda that distributes health products through an Avon-like distribution model: http://livinggoods.org/

Wishing you the best of luck,
Chris
