PUNE: A student of College of Engineering Pune (CoEP) has developed a device called VeinBot that can draw blood automatically from the body of a patient in a hygienic way.

Pankaj Badatia, a student of second year MTech at CoEP, had presented the project at the CoEP-Seneca Innovative Project Competition and subsequently won the competition.

With an aim to foster entrepreneurship for young innovators in India and Canada, Seneca College’s entrepreneurship incubator centre, named Health Entrepreneurship and Lifestyle Xchange (HELIX), in Canada and College of Engineering, Pune (CoEP) had jointly held a competition at the CoEP campus.

“Needle stick injuries occurs when body fluid of a patient comes in contacts with a phlebotomist or a nurse. Over 20 types of infections, including the deadly HIV, Hepatitis B (HBV) and Hepatitis C (HCV), could occur due to needle stick injuries,” said Badatia.

Four students from Seneca College with best entrepreneurship ideas had also visited the CoEP campus and interacted with students, sharing various ideas on start-ups. Paulo Meneghal, who graduated in civil engineering technology from Seneca College, talking about his project, EMERGE, said, “It is a patient-centric mobile application that aims to improve information flow between patients, hospitals and clinics.” 

The other projects were NextGen Labs by Travis Clements-Khan and Medistream by Kevin Bache and Chester Wu Besify.
