About the solution

"It was now too late to save her. It was too hard to keep track of her vitals, of how she's doing, and that is how I thought of a way to automate the whole process and keep track of her health”, she explained.

Olivia teamed up with Brian Turyabagye, a telecommunications engineering graduate, born in 1992, and together they invented "Mama-Ope" (Mother's Hope), a kit which consists of a biomedical smart jacket and a mobile phone application which does the diagnosis.

The jacket is still a prototype, and works by being slipped onto the patient. The jacket's sensors then pick up sound patterns from the lungs, temperature and breathing rate.

"The processed information is sent to a mobile phone app (via Bluetooth) which analyses the information in comparison to known data so as to get an estimate of the strength of the disease," Olivia stated.

According to the inventors, the kit can make a diagnose three times faster than a doctor, also reducing human error.

The team is now working to get the jacket patented.
