Development of low cost point of care device for detection of schistosoma Haematobium

Intestinal infections like worms are common in many poor countries and even when continuous  treatment is arranged at low cost, diagnostics and identification of treatment fails due to unavailability of diagnostic equipment and resources. With the proliferation of raspberry pi micro controller, data transfer networks and digital microscopy applications the stage is set for alternatives to conventional microscopy in endemic areas. Our aim was to show, as proof of concept, that it is po...

Application of fuzzy clustering data mining approach to garment sizing problem

ABSTRACTCurrently owing to the annual increase of data, there is urgent need for anthropometric database and useful approaches, in designing machine, equipment, facilities, workspace and other products. Fuzzy clustering which is an important way of clustering is an approach where an object is grouped into more than one partitions. The approach is used to bridge the gap between the anthropometry dimension of an individual and garment size which is a problem attributed to the size of the ...
