About

A portable system for pediatric care in remote places

Asha is a simple handheld device to help ASHA (Accredited Social Health Activist) workers monitor the vitals and track the growth of infants on a regular basis, without having to visit a hospital. Asha consists of a solar powered, digital scale for measuring the baby’s weight and temperature and a specialised blanket onto which the child’s development is recorded. This simple tool helps to save thousands of lives by providing on-time, credible care at a local level.
