Project Asli: how it started

Announcement Date: September 1, 2013

The Frugal Thermometer project began with the proposal of developing an affordable and accurate fever thermometer for women and children in Africa, by combining the strenghts of Leiden University Medical Centre (medical antrhopology) and the Faculty of Industrial Design at Delft University of Technology. To explore the existing possibilities a student team was assigned to carry out a project during six months.
