Use of smart speculum device to screen and diagnose cervical cancer in Cameroon.

Conrad is a medical doctor and entrepreneur from Cameroon who passionately believes that technology solutions tailored to the African context can help solve many of the continent's health challenges. After graduating as a doctor, he worked in rural settings in Cameroon, and he has witnessed first-hand how difficult it is for people in these rural areas to access basic healthcare services.

This inspired him to start a health-tech venture that designs and promotes cutting-edge and cost-effective solutions for health challenges in Sub-Saharan Africa. GICMED has developed a smart speculum device. It integrates the concept of a speculum and a colposcope into a single portable device, which can easily be manipulated by a frontline nurse, powered by a smart device, and the GICMED solution enables medical experts to receive and review data for remote diagnosis. The device is designed to work in rural areas that don’t have reliable electricity supply or internet connectivity.
