Field of Application: Medical Devices and healthcare
Catheter Reprocessing System (CRS, Patent Applied):
CRS is an automatic angiography and angioplasty catheter cleaning machine which is developed to use at Hospitals. It is an automation over conventional manual method of catheter cleaning process which does not standardized cleaning quality and is also prone to human errors.
CRS is cost effective & quality assured way of reprocessing catheter to make treatment cost effective. It automates the entire manual cleaning process to avoid infection and also eliminates human error.
Problem Statement
According to WHO, “Cardiovascular diseases (i.e. Heart, Brain and Vascular diseases) are the number 1 cause of death globally, killing 17.5 million people every year”.
According to World Bank, 82% of these deaths occur in middle & lower income group because of very expensive treatment.
India has highest number of patients (32 Million) with 67% of population living in poverty.

“People are dying because they cannot afford treatment “The GRAND CHALLENGE” is How to make it affordable and save millions of poor lives?
Catheter Reprocessing System (CRS) reduces treatment cost upto 55%. it makes treatment affordable and safe treatment for economically weak people.
CRS can save millions of lives by making healthcare affordable and accessible for all sections of society. This will especially benefit economic weaker sections of the society.
CRS: Resolves all problems related with catheter reprocessing and make them 100% patient safe.
It’s an automatic computer guided Catheter cleaning machine with inbuilt self-testing and calibration which guarantees 100% cleaning of catheter.
CRS inbuilt computer stringently monitors every process and effectively cleans catheters with precision and accuracy. This is not possible with conventional method. It also eliminates all kind of human error.

99% Cost Reduction: Cost of new catheters starts from Rs 2500/- whereas reprocessed catheter costs Rs 20/- only.
On an average, 1-3 catheters are required. So, instead of paying Rs 2,500-7,500 earlier, patient now has to pay Rs 20-60 each case. A reduction of 99% in catheter price. Hence overall treatment bill is decreased and benefits population at large.

Socio Economic Benefits of the Project:
1. Catheter Cost reduction by 99%.
2. Provide Accessible, Affordable and safe treatment for poor patients and Benefiting 36 lakh Poor Patients:
3. Saving 90% Foreign Exchange on Medical Catheters.
