New Delhi, Apr 11 : A device that can be used to sanitise the entire body has been developed at the IIT (BHU)'s innovation centre. Jeetu Shukla, an incubate of Malaviya Centre for Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship (MCIIE) at IIT (BHU) has developed a device that can be mounted anywhere and which works in an automated manner.
It is sensor-based, can be installed outside any premises and will prove useful in today's global fight against the COVID-19 virus. The sensor-based installed machine will automatically detect a person coming in front of the device and will spray 10-15 ml of sanitiser for 15 seconds and sanitise the person's entire body, clothes, and shoes. This device can be installed any place where there is movement of people, so that one enters the premises only after getting sanitised.
Giving this information, Prof P K Mishra, Coordinator, Malviya Centre for Innovation, Incubation & Entrepreneurship, IIT (BHU) said this device has been made according to today's requirement. "We are using normal sanitiser currently being used by the Government. Due to this sanitisation, it is possible to avoid most of the viruses that cause harm to the person. Validation of the dose, exposure time, frequency is under process. However, even after being sanitised with this device, one is required to wear masks, make social distancing and wash hands with soap at regular intervals," an official release here said. (UNI)
