Overview

Pneumonia is a common illness that affects millions of people each year.Pneumonia is usually diagnosed by looking at the patient's symptoms and past records.It is commonly misdiagnosed with malaria asthma and tuberculosis. These diseases have vital signs in common and there is need to clearly differentiate them. Lack of a clear differentiation between viral and bacterial pneumonia during diagnosis leads to wrong administration of drugs which creates resistance. Research shows that most lives are lost when the disease is under estimated i.e. when its severity is not known.MAMA OPE is a biomedical application for early diagnosis and continuous monitoring of pneumonia patients. It derives its name from Olivia s (team member) grandmother who lost the battle to pneumonia in June 2014. MAMA stands for mother and OPE denotes hope. The MAMA OPE thus symbolizes Hope for the Mother . The vest specifically designed for children 0 to 5 years who are most prone to the disease.
