The main challenge to develop the device was that it must function properly in extremely remote and harsh conditions. These devices are used in deserts, monsoon areas, mountaintops, and rainforests. Frontline health workers go door-to-door—or tent-to-tent, or even cookfire-to-cookfire—and the devices get wet, dirty, dropped on the floor, jostled around the backs of jeeps, thrown in backpacks and rucksacks, and “borrowed” by children. Developing a robust product was very high on Simprints’ list of priorities.
