The firm is a manufacturing partner at the Andhra Pradesh MedTech Zone – India’s first medical technology park. Their innovation is also listed in AIM’s top 50 healthcare innovations, Niti Aayog.
Their patented solution, Abhay Parimiti, is a multi-disease prognosis system that enables complete health screening in just 30 seconds. The ease of the device includes the health test via one-finger placement only. The touch-based system generates over five primary body vitals, including cuffless Blood pressure, Pulse Rate, Respiratory rate, Heart-rate variability, Fever detection, and an AI-based health score result.
The founders now showcasing their innovation in the conference added, “We plan to use the platform of Nokia’s pavilion at IMC 2022 to showcase the technology advancement in our healthcare system, how through 5G we can enable healthcare accessibility even in the remotest regions of the nation.” They plan to also showcase their “Healthcare Anytime, Anywhere Model” made just for the masses of India.
The start-up massively focuses on pushing this technology across the both rural and urban landscape even into the low resource settings, introducing ubiquitous healthcare accessibility. The device is IoT, AI and ML enabled, making it one of the most promising health-tech devices. The system is cost-effective and screens multiple subjects taking just 30 seconds each. It has a versatile deployment, from the settings of a hospital to a corporate office – their system does it all.
