Innovation is currently the buzz word. With the present level of communication availability, it is important to take advantage of the developments throughout the world. Imperial Innovations is one such technology transfer and commercialization company. It is based in Britain and was founded in 1986.
i2india is the Indian arm of Imperial Innovations and is trying to fill the gaps in product innovation in India by creating an eco-system for early stage technology commercialization. i2india has recently launched a technology venture called i2iHealth which is specifically created to address the unique challenges of Indian health-care. The Indian health care system is a complex myriad of obstacles. To provide solutions on a large scale would require excellent implementation.
i2iHealth is in a very nascent stage, and its vision is to introduce path-breaking technologies at primary health-care level at low-costs which in turn will help to will help catch diseases at early stages hence significantly reducing mortality rates and also the overall health-care cost to the society.
i2iHealth is working on a number of innovative solutions which they hope would boost the current state of affairs upon introduction. Lung Flute which uses patented low frequency acoustics wave technology is an example of this and details about which are available on their website.
Ventures of these kind are of utmost importance to the Indian society and will definitely help to improve the general health standards, if implemented as planned. i2iHealth is in a very nascent stage, but it is a much needed initiative and it will pay rich dividends once the venture strikes maturity.
