Do you know about this medical startup from Udaipur which saves older patients from Trauma?

Udaipur has always topped the list of ‘the best places to visit’ due to its hotel and tourism industry worldwide, but this city is also home to numerous budding entrepreneurs. And this time, the flag has been held up by Dr. Tanushree Jain.

Dr. Tanushree Jain, a graduate from Manipal University, Karnataka, is currently working as a Chief Executive Officer of Think Out Of The Box (TOOTB) Healthtech Private Limited. Her startup TOOTB Healthcare Private Limited has developed a self-aspirating syringe, which aims at reducing the trauma caused to the patients when they are administered injections by the newly-appointed doctors, nurses, and clinicians. It also got support from the Indian Institute of Management Udaipur Incubation Center (IIMU).

TOOTB focuses on developing innovative products for the medical field and the startup is related to designing disposable syringes. The syringes developed are used to administer drugs through intravenous and intramuscular injection for the treatment of diseases.

The thought of inventing this device struck her mind while she was giving an injection to one of her elderly patients, she was not able to perform Injection-aspiration procedure with one hand and this became the reason for her to develop such a tool. She developed 3d printed fully functional prototype and one thing lead to another.

She believes that the medical field needs a lot of innovations and we should not adjust with already existing old techniques. We should keep innovating on a regular basis which shall provide not only ease to the doctors but also less trauma to the patients during the treatment.

According to the doctor, the main supporter is IIM Udaipur Incubation center team and its mentor – Deepak Joshi. His mentorship and support guided her at every step and helped her to build the startup. She learned marketing skills from Ashish S. Galande who still guides her at every step. Dr. Bhanno Prakash Verma (ENT SURGEON) also shared his medical experience and supported her. She is very thankful to IIM Udaipur Incubation center Team– Dr. Umamaheswaram, Gaurav and Aastha who tremendously supported her throughout this process.

Dr.Tanushree believes that there is a lot of innovation required in the medical field. “Our startup is not only working to overcome some of the medical related problems but also with innovation try to make the already existing devices easier for the doctors, dentist, nurses and less traumatic for the patients. Currently, we are performing clinical trials in the hospitals, looking for investors and planning to launch this device in the market soon” says Tanushree. This startup has also been awarded as National Level Business Plan Competition winner.

Polio Sunday at polio booth

Its the pulse polio campaign again. Every state, every city, every street, every home is participating in the movement to eradicate polio from India. A three day nationwide campaign has started in the country from today. Udaipur has shown a positive response to the campaign and many parents can be seen bringing their children to the polio booths.

This is a three day campaign. For the 1st day, i-e today, many booths have been set up at all places in the city, in every prime and sensitive location, where a team of medical students/doctors are present to provide the polio vaccination. Today this programme is scheduled till 5 p.m. in the evening. For an estimate, there are about 20+ booths in the city by the government medical college students, and even more by the private medical colleges, and at all the hospitals.

For the 2nd day, the team will be doing the field work which will include door to door survey to ensure that every child has been vaccinated, and if not, they must be provided with it. The same will be done on the 3rd day too to ensure no child is left on the second day too.

Along with this arrangement, there are many mobile vans which will travel all around the city and the peripherals for ensuring the perfect success of the programme, by supervising the programme, as well as covering all remote areas, such as any construction sites, slums, etc. The mobile van will consist of a doctor/supervisor, two nurses, and two medical students on an average.
