A start-up company named Bluesemi from Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT-Hyderabad) Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE) has developed a new and innovative medical device which can conduct 6 medical diagnostic tests without even taking the blood samples from the patients.

According to Maddikatla Sunil Reddy, who had founded the ‘Bluesemi’ four years ago established in Gatchibowli IIIT campus, he had a dream of developing a new medical device which conduct vital medical tests without even taking the blood samples or without even using the needle.

“After intense research and innovative thinking as to how we can utilize the new and advanced technology to find solutions particularly with regard to conducting blood tests, we developed a simple device called Iva, which can be held in a hand for 60 seconds and it would conduct as many as 6 different medical tests of a person without even actually taking the blood sample. Using Iva device we can detect blood glucose level, can perform ECG, heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen level (SPO2) and even perform the function of a thermometer and detect the body temperature,” informed Sunil Reddy.

Explaining the mechanism and how one can use the newly developed medical device, Reddy said that first a related application must be downloaded into the individual’s smartphone and then connect the device with the smartphone through bluetooth. And later, the Iva device can be held into the hand of a person who is undergoing the diagnostic tests and in just 60 seconds all the mentioned medical tests results can be obtained from the application installed in the mobile phone.

“Iva device has been developed in such a way that it uses the artificial intelligence (AI) technology and it has also been incorporated with internet of things (IoT) technology. By using these advanced technologies, the device conducts the diagnostic tests in a remarkable way giving highly accurate results and the same are stoned into the mobile application. Apart from giving the important diagnostic tests results, the device can also give tips for a patient as to what remedies and precautions one  needs to take if at all their test results are beyond normal readings,” informed Reddy.

As the company had already got the patent for the new medical device, the Bluesemi founder informed that by end of June this year this device will also be available to the public in the open market. It is expected the device may cost around Rs. 15,500.
