Abstract

Nowadays, technology affects every distinct aspect of modern society. Hi-tech revolution invades the way people live in this technological era. As the Philippine healthcare industry crosses the threshold of digital age, the needs for a health information technology device challenges the proponents to make a possible solution in creating a system related in health care. The proponents come up with the idea of creating a device that will analyze the urine pH of a gout patient and correlate it to the uric acid level. The proponents designed and developed a home-based uric acid/ pH level analysis device for gout patients that is capable of measuring the urine pH of the user and correlate it to the uric acid level. This study is divided into two parts; the first part is the hardware part wherein the proponents used Arduino Microcontroller, Bluetooth module, pH sensor kit and power boost converter. On the other hand is the software part, which includes the Arduino IDE and B4A software. This device uses an android application in order to display the result of the test and the medical status and profile of the user. The android application has a purpose for doctor and patient interaction for the doctor’s clinical recommendation. The proponents are able to build a device that measures the pH/uric acid level of a gout patient using the pH sensor and the Arduino micro controller.
