Mobile phone app to identify premature babies in the developing world

A mobile phone app that will identify babies born prematurely in the developing world is being developed by researchers at The University of Nottingham.

The technology will use distinctive features on the feet, face and ears of newborns to more accurately estimate the gestation of babies and to identify those who may need urgent medical care.

The project, which brings together experts from the University’s Division of Child Health, Obstetrics and Gynaecology and School of Computer Science, is being supported with a $100,000 grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
