BETiC-NSE Foundation

Name of the Project:

Innovative Medical Devices for Affordable Healthcare


Vision of the Project:

The Biomedical Engineering and Technology Innovation Centre (BETIC) at IIT Bombay was set up to bring together clinicians, researchers, entrepreneurs, and facilitators to develop indigenous medical devices that are affordable and suitable for the Indian population. Another vision of the project is to be ‘atmanirbhar’ and contribute to the ‘Made in India’ movement.’

Unfortunately, there are three critical gaps in India’s healthcare industry. These include Innovative Products, Trained Innovators, and Integrated Facilities. BETIC and the NSE Foundation have come together to address these crucial gaps, develop indigenous capability in the field of medical device innovation, and strengthen our healthcare ecosystem.

 The key objectives of the project are:

– Six novel medical devices which have completed the first stage of field trials, will be identified and deployed through NGOs and Government hospitals, etc. for larger field and market trials

– Train at least 12 aspiring researchers/innovators

– Utilize the existing facility for product development

The project will be situated in Maharashtra and other resource-constrained states.
