A startup has launched a new smartphone-based portable oxygen kit that can provide a continuous supply of oxygen during disasters and medical emergencies.
The smartphone-based device is claimed to be easy to handle and transport. The setup can supply oxygen to communities during situations such as the recent COVID 19 pandemic and other disasters such as medical emergencies and altitude-related problems.
The field-portable smart bag pack, the emergency oxygen concentrator called Oxygen Plus, was designed by GRS India, a Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DIPP) of the Government of India, supported by the North East Center for Technology Applications. Recognized start-up. REACH (NECTAR), an autonomous organization of the Department of Science and Technology (DST). The product is suitable for easy transportation in hilly areas of North East, will be manufactured at NER. A statement from the Ministry of Science and Technology said that the process of filing the patent is underway.
During the recent pandemic, arranging oxygen for patients suffering from breathlessness had become a major challenge. Traditional oxygen support techniques for pulmonary, respiratory and trauma patients in community outreach were found to be time-consuming, costly and required sophisticated equipment and procedures. It was difficult to reach them in times of need, especially in remote areas.
Anticipating similar situations in the future, the start-up came up with the idea of developing a field-portable smart bag pack emergency kit-based oxygen refiller, which can be linked to a monitoring mobile application for Covid-19 and others. Is. emergency life support.
The device can be used by frontline workers, paramedics, fire tenders, nurses, doctors for oxygen support during medical emergencies, to protect healthcare workers from the risk of breathing contaminated air.
The developed product is currently being validated, and the design is still being worked on.
