TUMIQUI Smart Kit

In the six months since its installation at the clinic, about 600 deliveries have been made.

English version coming soon !

There are about 1,488 clinics in Senegal, and if you include medium-sized health centers and smaller health huts, there are more than 4,200 medical facilities.

Electricity is essential for births and emergencies that take place in the early hours of the night. In the absence of electricity, the clinic uses a fuel-powered generator or relies on the light of a flashlight or cell phone on hand to provide medical care. And fuel is very expensive in African society, so it's not always readily available. I also have to go to a town a few kilometers away to charge my phone.

 

The TUMIQUI Smart Kit improves this situation and contributes to safe and secure medical care.

Doctors and nurses at the clinic said, "The TUMIQUI, which can be powered by an electrical outlet and recharged via USB, is easy to take with you wherever you go. In addition, with the wifi, we are able to work more efficiently in the field because we don't have to travel 30 kilometers back and forth to the central clinic where the internet is available to enter data for medical records. We have received a lot of comments from people who said, "I'm so happy".
