Malawi University of Science and Technology (Must) has collaborated with Scotland’s University of Strathclyde to conduct a state-of-the-art research that will help resolve problems being faced in Malawi’s health sector.
Speaking at a function where the two universities were sharing areas of cooperation in the field of biomedical engineering on Thursday, Must head of engineering section Edwin Khundi said the research collaboration is a strategic agreement between the two universities to partner and conduct the said research.
“The benefit is both economical and also in the area of the education quality that Malawi will have. We intend to do more of rehabilitation using the system called ‘motion capture’, as such we want to design a software and also a cheaper motion capture that can be used in Malawi and that can be commercialised by the two universities,” said Khundi.
Professor Philip Rowe, director of the Centre of Excellence in Rehabilitation Research Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Strathclyde, said Must was chosen for the collaboration because of its goals and aspirations.
