Science in India focusses on developing innovative, low-cost solutions in the fields of healthcare, diagnostics and information technology. Made-in-India solutions that have impacted many lives worldwide include Axiostat, an advanced wound dressing that stops traumatic external bleeding and has been awarded the “Good Samaritan Award 2016”; ToucHb, a non-invasive anaemia scanner; and DiaSense, a diabetic neuropathy device. The latter has huge potential in the German market, as lifestyle diseases such as diabetes are prevalent, and cost-efficient treatment technology born out of dire need in India can help rein in the exorbitant cost of healthcare services.
