RxBox, a Telehealth System

Designed to provide better access to life-saving health care services in isolated and disadvantaged communities nationwide.

The RxBox Research Program

The RxBox research program aims to develop a locally-manufactured, medical-grade telemedicine device and demonstrate its usefulness in target Rural Health Units / Local Health Centers in GIDA (geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas) municipalities nationwide.

Life Saving Diagnostics in a Box

The RxBox can reduce the overall cost of healthcare by enabling health workers to diagnose, monitor and treat patients within the rural health facility, thanks to medical sensors inside the box!

What can RxBox do?

The RxBox is a telemedicine device capable of capturing medical signals through built-in medical sensors

Blood Pressure Monitor

Measures the patient’s blood pressure to detect cardiovascular (heart and blood vessels) problems especially hypertension, a disease which can also worsen other chronic lifestyle disease conditions.

Pulse Oximeter

Measures the level of oxygen in the patient’s blood and can help detect lung and cardiovascular problems – leading causes of death among Filipinos.

Electrocardiogram (ECG)

Monitors the heart’s movement to pump blood throughout the body, helpful for those with acute and chronic heart problems, including pregnant mothers with cardiovascular problems.

Fetal Heart Monitor

Measures the baby’s heart rate while in the womb, helping detect fetal distress at critical times of the pregnancy and delivery.

Maternal Tocometer

Measures the strength of a mother’s uterine contractions during labor and delivery, enabling early detection of distress to the mother and/or the baby.

Temperature Sensor

Measures a patient’s body temperature. It can help detect fever, a common medical sign of infection and other disease conditions.
