Tabla is a low-cost medical diagnostic device for pneumonia detection. Pneumonia is a leading cause of death in pediatric patients worldwide due to lack of access to healthcare and the costliness of chest X-rays, the current gold standard of diagnosis. Tabla is a non-invasive solution that can detect fluid levels in the lungs during pneumonia. It sends an audio signal into the chest and then collects and analyzes the resulting response towards a diagnosis. Such a device can be highly useful to patients in detecting pneumonia early on. It can also be applied towards tracking other pulmonary conditions such as heart failure and asthma.
