A female student has her blood pressure checked through the RxBox during the recent National Science and Technology Week of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) at SMX Convention Center.


Rx Box has built-in medical sensors for monitoring blood pressure and blood oxygen levels, assessing the strength of contraction of the mother?s uterus, as well as electrocardiogram and fetal heart monitor. The device is capable of storing and transmitting patient data to allow health workers in remote communities to consult with medical experts in urban areas.

Developed by University of the Philippines Manila-National Telehealth Center and DOST, the Rx Box aims to provide better access to life-saving healthcare service in isolated and disadvantaged communities nationwide.
