The best feeling is to see an #innovation get recognition and acclaim!
I am so proud of the technology #Saans - Mechanical CPAP device, that was once upon a time, just an idea on the drawing board at a competition in 2015 (Interview from #TheHindu when it won the Tata Social Enterprise challenge - see image) and it has come a long way to actually save lives of babies in respiratory distress while being transported in rural areas.
As one of the many co-inventors of this technology, I am proud to see it in the hands of Shri #AmithabBacchan and receive a prestigious #NationalAward. Kudos to #Coeo labs Pvt Ltd lead by Nitesh Jangir, Nachiket Deval, Basava Kumar M and to the leadership team at #Innaccel for bringing this idea to life. This wouldn't have been possible without the massive support by the #DepartmentOfBiotechnology, Government of India and Centre for Cellular and Molecular Platforms (C-CAMP) .
I set this as another example of how strong cross-disciplinary team of Doctors, Engineers, Designers, Program managers and the Government can bring a technology that is specifically required for our healthcare ecosystem. This is the way for #MakeInIndia to transform & improve our #healthcare for the betterment of patients in need.
