About

Babymetrix is a simple and affordable system to monitor the growth of children in developing countries.  By measuring weight, length, and head circumference with a low-cost, mobile system, this team hopes to generate earlier warning of at-risk children, leading to more effective preventative measures, treatments, and therefore healthier growth. Taking their project into action, they will launch a pilot project in Malawi, where they have connections through their university.
