Meet Arthur Zang 26, A Cameroonian Engineer behind the Cardiopad: Zang is the inventor of the Cardiopad, a touch screen medical tablet that enables heart examinations such as the electrocardiogram (ECG) to be performed at remote, rural locations while the results of the test are transferred wirelessly to specialists who can interpret them. The device spares African patients living in remote areas the trouble of having to travel to urban centers to seek medical examinations. Prior to Zang’s invention, patients suffering heart ailments had to travel long distances to the urban centers in order for them to undergo examination. Even if they could, the sheer numbers of the patients and the fact that the heart surgeons are only a handful meant that patients had to make appointments months prior. In some instances, some patients died before their scheduled date of appointment with the doctors.
