India is always future-ready in the face of any disaster.
Even as the COVID-19 cases surged in different parts of the country and infrastructure in hospitals came under immense pressure, India pushed through many challenges posed by COVID-19 with new innovations in Health infrastructure.
Among these many advancements, Innovative modular hospitals came as a huge relief during the second wave of COVID-19.
What are Modular Hospitals?
Modular hospitals are an extension of hospital infra that can be built adjacent to an existing hospital building. They consist of various life-support equipment and medical devices.
After identifying the requirements of around 50 hospitals in states that were reporting the highest number of Covid-19 cases, the government of India has initiated Project Extension Hospitals.
This project aims to set up 20-100 bedded hospitals in 10 days to 4 weeks, in various districts which are seeing a rapid surge of confirmed COVID-19 cases.
Under this premises, Modulus Housing, a start-up incubated at IIT Madras has developed the MediCAB hospitals which enable building a 100-bedded extension facility in 3-weeks’ time.
MediCAB hospitals are designed with a dedicated zone of Intensive Care Units that can accommodate various life-support equipment and medical devices.
These negative pressure portable hospitals are future-ready. They have the durability of around 25 years, and can also be shifted in the future for any disaster response in less than a week.
