Smartphone-based monitoring of jaundice in newborns

PICTERUS AS logo

Overview

Description

Picterus develops and distributes a smartphone app that can diagnose jaundice in newborns. Worldwide, 114,000 children die unnecessarily from jaundice every year. In addition, jaundice complicates and creates extra stress for parents as they have to go back and forth to the hospital just to keep their child's jaundice levels under control.



Our app will help solve both of these problems, as we are developing the world's first low-cost diagnostic tool for jaundice that works on all skin types.
