Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
There is a device PICO available in market but it is too costly and difficult for poor class people or medium class people to afford it and the other draw back of this device is that it work for only a week (7 days) after it stops working and nothing make it start again.On the other side my device SWIFTHEAL is cost efficient as the total manufacturing cost is Rs 1500 ($24) as well as provide unlimited working access to device just you need to change the pad regularly that's it. As this device is cost effective,affordable by all type class people.
Sustainability and future plans
We are working on another variant of SWIFTHEAL which would be SWIFTHEAL+ where one can access all the advance technology like live wound status, pad change time, connect to smartphone etc... SWIFTHEAL is a very basic model as people from village will also use this so it just one click start device, as they can have some difficulty while connecting with smartphone. SWIFTHEAL+ is quite advance model so one who want all facilities can purchase SWIFTHEAL+. SWIFTHEAL is very low cost device people will like to purchase it instead of investing thousands of money in hospital or other products. We are expecting big investment from government as well as private sector.
