A Busy week

  A Busy week Hindu Katowa, It has been a very busy and tough week with sleepless nights.We are running out of time.So we are supposed to work as much as we can so we can finish our final prototypes and prepare ourselves for the next week’s final projects presentations.So our team is working on the Automatic Chest Compressor.   But before we made a final prototype we made two prototypes which were piston and gear based chest compressors.And the processes were as follow: We started on making piston based prototype in which we 3D printed the piston and circulating rods Then we cut all remaining parts on a laser cutter. After that we assembled the parts and completed our first…

Needsfinding and Research: Key components of the design process

FINAL PROJECT Hindu Katowa There is no distance with no end. We are almost done with the internship. We are in 6th week of the internship. Right now we are working on our final projects, in which we are trying to solve challenges in which CCBRT and MUHIMBILI NATIONAL HOSPITAL face.  In our group we are trying to look at how to solve or how to help a person with cardiac arrest with an automatic device and not manually which is the current method used in Tanzania.    This method is not effectively done because cardiac rescue faces fatigue when performing the chest compression so it’s hard for them to perform 100-120 compressions/min.    So the doctors suggested using the automated chest…
