About the ELECTOR Project:
We are developing a small, mobile blood testing device for home use. Routine blood tests are done using just a small finger-prick blood sample with test results available in minutes for you and your health care professional to see.
A simple online self assessment tool will enhance your self management skills, questionnaires can be done online using your own tablet, smartphone or laptop computer.
Results are then transmitted to the rheumatology clinic ready for your appointment with your doctor or health care professional via a secure video or audio link.
