Frugal Thermometer Adapted to suit the situation, a simple thermometer for Africa
Through the absence of alternatives in many African countries a hand on the forehead is the way to measure a person’s temperature. Often with disastrous consequences. The Frugal Thermometer is a reliable, user-friendly and cheap alternative. Colors, sounds and emoticons indicate if, when and where people should seek medical assistance.
