Environmental impact

Environmental Impact

  • PCB Fabrication

    • Exposure to hazardous chemicals during manufacture

    • Small PCB minimizes impact

    • EU addressing the situation through RoHS and WEEE

  • LiPo

    • More durable than Ni-Cd batteries but can still explode when overcharged

    • Difficult to recycle

  • Power Consumption

    • Very low powered device

    • Limit the use of Wi-Fi

    • Use of servers for web hosting


Ethical issues

Ethical Issues

  • Calibration

    • Ensure sensors report correct readings and conform to all existing standards

    • Extensive testing phase

  • Safety

    • Built in system redundancies to mitigate the failure of high risk components

    • Ensure that our device does not affect patients with medical devices like a pacemaker.

  • Privacy

    • Handle sensitive medical data

    • Provide proper safeguards to prevent misuse
