Electrostatic Spraying System for produce (e.g., grapes and pomegranates) is more effective and four times more efficient than conventional spraying systems. It provides a more uniform dispersion and coating of the target. It is easy to use, reduces application time, reaches hidden areas of the produce, and conserves the applied liquid.
Cerebo is a handy, non-invasive, fully computerized system for detecting intracranial hemorrhage in two minutes. It is portable and does not require special skills to operate it. It is non-invasive and is based on the NIR Spectroscopy. When deployed in trauma centers, emergency departments, and ambulances, it can save the lives of millions of patients whose brain injuries go undiagnosed.
The settled and densified excreta sludge left behind in septic tanks are not properly removed by the vacuum trucks and dewatering pumps. This sludge is presently removed by humans known as “Manual Scavengers.” JALODBUST removes this sludge by scraping, agitating, and pumping it out while eliminating the need for human touch.
Spandan is the smallest medical grade ECG machine which weighs only 12 grams. It works with Spandan AI engine to identify and monitor 50+ abnormalities without any medical expertise and is ideal to use at the last mile connectivity by a layman. Spandan application also provides the assistance for the required actions and first-aid in case of an emergency. The device is just a matchbox size device which also helps to reduce risk of having a cardiac attack up to 80%. Spandan also reduces cost of per test up to 80% as compared to the traditional test.
Borean is an electrically powered, phase change material based reefer container for passive transit and storage of perishable products. Our modular thermal battery matrix technology enables us to provide customized cold chain solutions for a wide array of products ranging from meat, seafood, fruits & vegetables, dairy, confectioneries and pharmaceuticals.
