These cost-effective ventilators have been designed with the vision of delivering unique solutions that fulfill the full range of current ventilator specifications at a fraction of the cost of foreign counterparts. They are produced by India with best in class features and apps with worldwide applications. The equipment, which is exactly the need of the hour, is disruptive, reliable, and affordable.
The winning entries of the innovative ‘Ventilators and other respiratory Solutions’ conducted by Marico Innovation Foundation & Chairman of Marico Ltd are the ones that follow:
Ventilator by Shreeyash Electro Medicals
According to the press release, an indigenous ventilator developed by Shreeyash Electro Medicals with advanced features is available to hospitals at 20% of current market rates to tackle the pandemic. It has been found sufficient around the globe for both adult and pediatric ICUs and can be used in both invasive and non-invasive modes.
The system may also be set to complete ventilation mode, ensuring an unattended patient’s continued safe ventilation. They are currently undergoing testing by a NABL-accredited laboratory for the safety and critical performance of medical electrical equipment in compliance with IEC 60601-1.
Ventilator by KPIT
An ergonomically built mechanism by KPIT Technologies that focuses on user-friendliness to build a fully automatic air compression system that reduces costs significantly compared to conventional ventilators for critical care. For various environments, including remote medical centers, ambulances, and home care, the KPIT ventilator is portable and compatible.
Thirty percent of the equivalent products on the market would be priced at 13 kg, a lightweight but mechanically stable product. It is currently being evaluated by a NABL-accredited laboratory for the safety and critical performance of medical electrical equipment in compliance with IEC 60601-1.
Ventilator by Nocca Robotics
An ICU ventilator developed by Nocca Robotics can be used for invasive requirements, specially adapted for remote and rural settings. This turbine-based ventilator reduces the operator’s need for compressed medical air. It also comes with an in-built battery and, in case of a power cut, promises to operate the unit for long hours. The ventilator was tested by a NABL-accredited laboratory according to the IEC 60601-1 specification for the protection and critical performance of medical electrical equipment.
The primary purpose of these remarkable innovations is to see Indian entrepreneurs provide solutions that address important healthcare needs, be it patient and frontline workers’ disruptive costs, comfort, or suffering of a patient.
