Making Healthcare Universal

Healthcare should be a basic right for everyone. Yet around the world, billions of people are unable to access proper medical attention whether it is because of socioeconomic conditions, overcrowded hospitals, or location barriers. The current solution is telemedicine, which connects remote patients with online doctors. But similar to hospitals, online doctors are scarce and struggle to provide accurate treatments and diagnoses because they lack quantitative data that a clinic visit would collect.

Imagine an alternative solution with the accuracy of clinics and better accessibility than telemedicine. Salutem is a cost-effective smart device that combines built in IoT biomarker sensors with machine learning technology, allowing anyone to receive quality personalized healthcare whenever, wherever. Our portable device comes with sensors that analyze the bodily metrics necessary for proper medical assessments. Using our passions for machine learning, we integrated state of the art computer vision classifiers into the built in camera and anomaly detection algorithms into our biomarker sensors to aid in your virtual doctor with diagnosis.

Salutem can make telemedicine a viable option and give healthcare accessibility to the over 5 million Canadians who don’t have access to regular doctors in rural and impoverished areas. Salutem alleviates doctors from unnecessary inefficiencies, allowing them to specialize in treatments and clinics save time. Let’s build a future where healthcare is accessible to everyone.

Making Telemedicine a Viable Option

Salutem has the potentional to make a huge impact in Healthcare by giving online doctors a way to gather accurate quantitative and quantitative data.

Using Computer Vision and Machine Learning

Salutem uses machine learning and computer vision to help virtual doctors make better medical decisions. Our AI algorithms clean raw biosensor data, detect anomalies in patterns, classifies physical features using the built in camera, and soon, perform cloud based diagnosis.

Our Prototype

Affordable Design. Portable build. Salutem V1.0 is capable of collecting essential metrics about your doctor and integrated video calls to connect you directly with doctors.


Built for the Essentials

Salutem V1.0 uses a Raspberry Pi B+ with built-in IoT capabilities. We chose the raspberry pi for it's cost-effective computational power and friendly user interface. In future versions, we plan on switching to a raspberry pi zero, which is smaller and significantly more cost-effective while maintaining the ability to run Salutem's built in app. The Raspberri Pi allows Virtual Doctors to access your bodily metrics via the connected sensors.

5 inch Liquid Crystal Display Touchscreen

Exceptional for easy usage. Great for navigating Salutem's built in app. Allows you to easily video call with virtual doctors. If you’re thinking of it in the software sense of it you think of the LCD screen as the front end and the raspberry pi 3 as the backend. The raspberry pi 3 does the work that often isn’t seen by the user. It’s the brains of the LCD screen it’s allows for functional and interactive LCD screen experience.


Extendable Camera with LED Light

The HD camera would be used for specific functions like taking pictures of the ear, skin, eye, tongue or any part of the body when needed. Currently, we have a built in computer vision classifier that detects different skin conditions. The possibilities for computer vision integration are endless. It is also compatable with telemedicine services such as Maple Canada, allowing you to call your virtual doctor through the Salutem device.


Thermometer: Measuring temperature since 1714

If the doctor needs to understand your heartbeat then you’d need to use a portion of the stethoscope. Where the bottom of the stethoscope would be used to get the heartbeat and it would play it into the speaker/mic of the device. So you could also hear your heartbeat just like a doctor would.


Stethoscope and Electrocorticordiogram

If the doctor needs to understand your heart beat then you’d need to use a portion of the stethoscope. Where the bottom of the stethoscope would be used to get the heart beat and it would play the heartbeat sound and speed into the speaker/mic of the device. Then, you could also hear your heartbeat just like a doctor would.

The microphone allows you to communicate with an online doctor via the microphone on the device. It can take input and output making Salutem, the device, become a one stop place to communicate with online doctors as well.
