the 'motoworkr' concept, by marco vanella
the 'motoworkr' handset, conceptualized by italian designer marco vanella
offers medical professionals easy handheld access to the tools they require on a daily basis.
from left to right, 'motoworkr' can be used as a stethoscope, as a thermometer, to take blood pressure, and to update patient records
to the average consumer, the advantage of a smartphone
is that it agglomerates a number of common utilities
onto a single, easily portable device.
adapting this concept to the specific and often urgent needs of doctors and other medical workers,
'motoworkr' integrates a bluetooth thermometer, stethoscope,
and digital blood pressure reader into a cell phone.
in addition to providing immediate access to this range of tools,
the collection of such data directly into a web, card-reader, or database-enabled device
could provide instant updating and transferring of patient health records.
