At 24, Cameroonian engineer, Arthur Zang, is the epitome of innovation at its best. Zang has invented the Cardiopad, a touch screen medical tablet, and the first of its kind in Africa. The tablet enables heart examinations such as electrocardiograms to be performed from a distance. Meaning such examinations can be administered at remote rural areas and the results, transferred wirelessly to specialist for interpretation. Electrodes are placed on the patient in question and connected to a module, which is then connected to the Cardiopad; the results are then transmitted from the tablet to the specialist that will interpret them. The Cardiopads will save countless patients the hassle of travelling long distances to major hospitals for tests. According to Zang, the device is 97.5% effective, he developed this technology to facilitate the treatment of heart disease in Cameroon as well as the rest of Africa and believes that it will save numerous human lives.
