  • Low-cost multi-parameter tester - Raspberry Pi

    The Need
    Hospital equipment technicians (BMETs) have a frequent need to measure temperatures, pressures, and flow rates of both liquids and gasses. Commercial devices can cost over $2000 and are out of the budget range of low-resource training facilities. The development of extremely economical computers, such as the Raspberry Pi, created the opportunity to develop open source training tools.

    The Technology:
    Raspberry Pi and associated accessories
    Integrated Display (Optional)
    Relevant resources for training
    Temperature, pressure, flow, etc… sensors (at least 2)

    Specifications and Restrictions:
    This device should be for education use, and is not intended for testing medical equipment in a healthcare setting.
