Jonathan commented on Enhanced Kangaroo Mother Care

Hi Rahul,

I really like the idea peer teaching, from one mother to another. They will share empathetic view as to how to feed and care for their children correctly and safely.

Perhaps this could be implemented like a workshop in a community where mothers are encouraged to come along to teach and learn from each other. Would be a nice way to bring the community together and mothers can support one another

Jonathan commented on OMOMI Project UPDATED January 6th, 2015

This is great idea Emmanuel! It reminds me of health apps like 'mapmyrun' or 'myfitnesspal' where you can input data or data is recorded to provide useful health stats.

Perhaps you could look into these apps and use them as inspiration for your user interface. It would be nice to visually see beautiful charts and tables to inform the user about their child's health. Hopefully this would encourage people to stick with the app and continue to use it

Congratulations on making it into the refinement stage. Berns & Lee, If you need any help in terms of file set-up for the laser cutter for your next prototype then just give me a shout: jonathanjoanes@gmail.com

3mm clear acrylic can be polished in our workshop to achieve some what of a smooth finish. I'd also recommend picking up some off-cuts from Hamar acrylic shop to reduce the initial cost of the prototype.

Good luck!
