Current Biomedical Research in Medical Instrumentation & Telemedicine in India

As interest in medical electronics soars, there is also growing concern about associated quality, safety, reliability, cost, liability and regulatory issues. India’s Department of Information Technology (DIT) under the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology has instituted a Medical Electronics and Telemedicine Division to address these matters. Given the crucial role that medical electronics plays in health management and diagnostics, DIT has instituted a series of measures to spur growth within this sector and generate awareness about medical electronics technology among healthcare stakeholders. A further goal is encouraging the deployment of indigenously developed medical electronic devices in healthcare centres across the country.


With telepresence robots serving as stand-ins, there’s no reason for sick kids to miss school. Some children may prefer to skip class, of course, but for those with serious immune system disorders, telepresence ‘bots are a lifeline to the outside world.For the past three weeks, a new telepresence robot has allowed Knox City, Texas, high school freshman Lyndon Baty to interact with classmates, attend lectures and feel like a regular student. He suffers from polycystic kidney disease and had a kidney transplant at age 7. He attended school until last year, but when he started showing signs of transplant rejection, he was forced to stay home because of his suppressed immune system. He wears a surgical mask and must avoid almost all social interactions just to stay healthy.

In December, school district officials heard about the Vgo telepresence robot, a new platform released last year,
