Necessity is the mother of invention as they say. And necessity also brings out the best of the ideas. The best example of that has come from Jharkhand’s West Singhbhum district. Doctors and health workers are at the forefront in the pandemic. They have to treat the patients and are hence susceptible to COVID-19.
To ensure their safety robots are serving food and medicine to the patients. The man behind the idea is Aditya Ranjan. Aditya is District Deputy Development Commissioner (DDC) West Singhbhum. Aditya has developed the remote-controlled COBOT-Robotics with the help of kid’s ‘toy cars’ that are built at a cost of INR 25,000 each.
The robots are effective in providing and medicine to patients without human intervention. The robots also have mics through which doctors and health workers can communicate with patients.
The 20 and 30-bed ‘high-tech isolation wards’ will be inaugurated at the ANM Skill Centre, Chaibasa Sadar Hospital and COVID-19 Railway Hospital, Chakradharpur respectively on Tuesday, informed Aditya.
