A unique solar powered health care screening kit for the Indian armed forces and the paramilitary has been launched in the country that will keep record of the vital parameters of the defence personnel. These specially designed kits will keep a record of data like blood sugar level, blood pressure and heart rhythm. This information will come in handy during any emergency medical situations when the doctors can refer to the data for treatment of the soldiers without any delay.
Further, the device can also provide real time health alerts to the authorities by transmitting the patient information through a cloud system to the command hospital. As a result, the data that is received is screened at the hospital for risk profiling of the soldiers and helping to prevent any untoward incident. According to Rajdeep Tyagi, founder director of the Medi Tech Innovations, “the screening kit can screen jawans for cardiac risks through portable medical devices and prevent loss of lives.”
