This specially designed kit helps keep a record of the vital information such as blood sugar level, blood pressure, heart rhythm of the people posted in remote locations. This comes handy during any emergency medical situation involving the soldiers as the concerned doctors can then refer to the available data for treatment without any delay, according to a statement.

Moreover, the device can provide real time health alerts to the concerned authorities by transmitting patient information through cloud system to the command hospital. Post which, the received data is screened at the hospital for risk profiling of the soldiers and prevent any untoward incident.

Rajdeep Tyagi, founder director, MediTech Innovations, said, “As per news reports, heart attacks killed three-times more CRPF men than anti-Maoist operations. The Solar Powered Health Care Screening Kit can screen Jawans for cardiac risks through portable medical devices and prevent loss of lives.”

Developed by the Technical Business Incubation Centre of Sri Ram Institute, New Delhi, MediTech Innovations brings in innovative products and services by deploying sunrise technologies like Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence for Decision Support Systems, Healthcare Sensors, Image Processing, Mobile Computing and BluTooth Low Energy among others.
