Research Scholars of IIT Guwahati Develop Digital Health System For Remote Areas

They have participated in the competition under the category of "Student Innovators" and submitted the idea

Two research scholars of IIT Guwahati have submitted an idea of a benchtop digital setup integrated with an algorithm to record initial screening parameters like body temperature, pulse rate, eye and tongue analysis of a patient remotely.

Both Mitali Basak (a third-year PhD student) and Shirsendu Mitra (former PhD student) have been recognised for an entry to the global Charm Health Innovation Challenge. Charm Health Innovation Challenge is a Digital Healthcare focused technology competition organised by two California-based organisations, ‘Charm Health’ and ‘iValley’.

They have participated in the competition under the category of “Student Innovators” and submitted the idea.

The device developed by the scholars is capable of remotely doing primary health check-up. Further a robust algorithm along with cloud interfacing is expected to enable the device to store large volumes of health data for future benefit.

The winners of this challenge would be decided after submission of a prototype based on the proposed innovation. Basak and Mitra are working on the prototype which is expected to be ready within the next four months.
