We thank The New Vision for identifying and highlighting the exceptional talent displayed by Aaron Tushabe, Joshua Okello and Josiah Kavuma, all students of the College of Computing and Information Sciences (CoCIS), Makerere University.
The trio designed an application codenamed WinSenga that focuses on how to detect ectopic pregnancies in women as well as monitor baby movements and position in the womb during pregnancy.
However, we would like to clarify that WinSenga does not cost $3,000 (Sh7.3m) as was reported in the Sunday Vision of 13th May 2012. Currently, the WinSenga application is designed to run on smart phones with windows platforms.
These phones are increasingly getting cheaper on the market today. The other gadgets used in this application- the pinard horn and the microphone cost about sh5,000 ($2) and sh10,000 ($4) respectively.
In the future, with further adjustments we hope this application will also run on Android phones which are also very pocket-friendly.The College takes pride in coming up with innovations that address the needs of the common man.
