Revolutionizing Healthcare Reach: TechEagle's Advanced Drones in Exclusive Partnership with AIIMS Bilaspur, Swiftly Deliver Lifesaving Blood Samples to Himachal Pradesh's Remote Villages
TechEagle, the cutting-edge Indian Drone Delivery startup, is transforming emergency healthcare with groundbreaking drone technology, in collaboration with AIIMS Bilaspur. This partnership is pioneering a paradigm shift in delivering patients' blood samples swiftly and efficiently to the rural population of Himachal Pradesh.
A Symphony in the Skies: TechEagle's Vertiplane X3 Takes Flight-
Throughout the first half of October, the people of rural Himachal Pradesh experienced the transformative impact of TechEagle's initiative. The Vertiplane X3 took flight from AIIMS Bilaspur, making swift journeys to various remote locations across the state. In a groundbreaking move, the drone ferried patients' blood samples directly from remote ambulances to the testing unit at AIIMS Bilaspur in a matter of minutes. This ensured that crucial blood tests were conducted, and preparations for precise treatments were underway before the patients even arrived at the hospital, saving invaluable time and, ultimately, lives.
A Journey of Impact: Successful Trials Illuminate a Path of Hope-
Commencing on October 5th, 2023, the partnership has deployed the Made-in-India hybrid e-VTOL Drone, Vertiplane X3, to address the formidable challenges posed by the hilly terrain. The project witnessed multiple flights between AIIMS Bilaspur and remote regions of Himachal Pradesh. The most impactful leg of this endeavour was the flight between AIIMS Bilaspur and PHC Buhar. Covering a challenging road distance of 60 KM, which typically takes around 2 hours by road, the Vertiplane X3 completed the journey in a mere 12 minutes, a staggering 10X faster than traditional ground transportation.
Trials by Air: Flagging Off a Triumph-
In a compelling narrative of innovation, AIIMS Bilaspur conducted drone-based healthcare delivery trials, the final leg of this groundbreaking project was inaugurated by Ms. Ankita Mishra Bundela, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, and Dr. Vir Singh Negi, Executive Director of AIIMS Bilaspur. The Vertiplane X3 embarked on an inter-district journey from AIIMS Bilaspur to Civil Hospital, Darlaghat, District Solan, covering a road distance of 30 KM. Normally, this journey takes 1 hour and 30 minutes by road. However, with the Vertiplane X3 in action, the drone completed the mission in just 15 minutes, reducing the time by 5X. The drone not only delivered the payload swiftly but also returned with crucial patients' blood samples back to AIIMS Bilaspur.
