Improved Design Features

Our devices will support accurate child height/length measurements and readings by minimising the possibilities of human error in both measurement and data recording.

Modern Technology

With the use of ultra-modern technologies such as ultrasonic and lazer sensors to efficiently and accurately measure (accuracy parameters ± 2mm) and automatically store one-off and longitudinal child growth data.


Our portable, user-friendly, light weight (around 5 kg) deceive operates on 5V battery which can be charged by 12V battery, mains and solar. Therefore, it has wider applicability including suitable to use in extreme remote areas of LMICs that are not connected with road and/or electricity network.
