Developing Nation HIV Testers

The 'CATCH HIV Detector' Offers Users the Ability to Test from Home

— August 8, 2018 — Lifestyle
HIV prevalence on a worldwide scale maintains a high occurrence rate with new infections each year in the millions, so the conceptual 'CATCH HIV Detector' aims to help make it easier for those in developing nations to test from home.

The tester is the design work of Hans Ramzan and works by being slid over the finger; the integrated disinfectant sleeve will clean the area before the integrated needle can be pressed down to draw blood. The press of the integrated button will provide instant test results without the need for a lab or healthcare professional to make testing far more accessible for those in rural areas to perform from home.

The 'CATCH HIV Detector' could be produced at a cost of just £4 per unit and could help to drastically cut down on the number of people who don't know their status to help curb the virus from spreading.
Trend Themes
1. Home HIV Testing - The 'CATCH HIV Detector' offers the convenience of testing for HIV from the comfort of one's home.
2. Affordable Testing Solutions - At a cost of just £4 per unit, the 'CATCH HIV Detector' provides an affordable option for HIV testing.
3. Accessible Healthcare in Developing Nations - The 'CATCH HIV Detector' enables individuals in rural areas to easily test for HIV without the need for a lab or healthcare professional.
Industry Implications
1. Healthcare - The 'CATCH HIV Detector' could disrupt traditional healthcare models by allowing individuals to test for HIV at home.
2. Medical Devices - The development of affordable and easy-to-use HIV testing devices, like the 'CATCH HIV Detector', presents opportunities for innovation in the medical device industry.
3. Global Health - By providing accessible and affordable HIV testing in developing nations, the 'CATCH HIV Detector' has the potential to positively impact global health outcomes.
