KANPUR || Research at the Indian Institute of Kanpur (IIT-K) has always amazed people around the world and immensely contributed to society. In the chain of many such kinds of research, the premier educational institute has now come up with a convenient patient transfer system which would be a boon for patients suffering from accidents, old age and other traumas.
The patient transfer system developed at IIT Kanpur is such that it can be retrofitted to any existing stretcher. This process, otherwise cumbersome and of great discomfort to the ailing patient, can be completed by just one person.
The system enables the patient to be automatically shifted from one stretcher to other with the assistance of just one staff.
