Vervel Pedometer / Healthcare Design

Vervel Pedometer

The initial symptom of bird flu is energy reduction. Because there are usually a big number of domestic fowls in a poultry farm, it’s difficult to tell which fowl has been losing its energy. Vervel Pedometer was designed specifically to solve this problem. Having fowls wear a Vervel Pedometer, a central control system can easily detect the fowl whose number of walking steps is below average and quarantine it so that a large-scale killing can be avoided.
