Medical help will be easily accessible to patients sin remote areas, disaster prone areas etc.
The OT is foldable. Every part of it can be folded and packed into a backpack. This invention is specially designed for medical camps, organ donations, trauma care, disaster-prone and rural parts of the country. It is to be noted that this portable model is different from a mobile OT set up inside a vehicle, such that the equipment can be assembled at the site and be transported by 2-3 persons. The OT comprises an air purifier, a mini air conditioner, a portable sterile enclosure, surgical gowns, a foldable table, hand-wash units and surgical instruments. The feature of the sterile enclosure is such that inside air can go outside, but outdoor air cannot come inside as the purified air is maintained at positive pressure inside the sterile enclosure. Except for the transparent sterile sheet which can be procured at less than Rs 300, the remaining equipment can be reused.
