IIT Kanpur: As the second wave of Covid-19 caused chaos across the country, shortage of oxygen triggered a major crisis. In this backdrop, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur, has created a 'Swasa Oxyrise' bottle which increases the oxygen level in a human body. This unique device can be carried anywhere with great ease and can meet the need of oxygen in case of a medical emergency. It has been made at IIT Kanpur Incubation Centre and is a portable oxygen canister.
Sandeep Patil, an IIT Kanpur alumnus and Director of E-Spin Nanotech, said , "In view of the Covid-19 crisis in the country, E-Spin Nanotech has created 'Swasa Oxyrise'. It increases the oxygen flow inside the body. To fulfil the requirement of oxygen during the second wave of Covid-19, this device has been made at IIT Kanpur Incubation Centre. It has been created during the ongoing pandemic by E-Spin Nanotech and Jasolab. It can prove to be very effective during medical emergency. But it cannot be used in case of critically ill patients."
Apart from Covid-19, it is very effective for asthma patients and army personnel posted at high altitudes. It can be kept in the medical kit quite easily. If someone's oxygen level suddenly starts to drop, it can be very helpful on to the hospital. One can easily intake oxygen by spraying it inside the face mask which will last for a long time. This will boost the oxygen supply in the body.
