Mission to boost innovation in health
iHub Anubhuti-IIITD Foundation (Technology Innovation Hub of IIIT-Delhi) and iHub Foundation for Cobotics (IHFC, Technology Innovation Hub of IIT Delhi) have inaugurated their joint medical facility, ‘MCC-Medical Cobotics Centre’ on the Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology, IIT Delhi campus on Friday.
The Department of Science and Technology (DST), the Government of India, has funded this joint facility to be operated by iHub Anubhuti and IHFC under the NMICPS mission.
The Medical Cobotics Centre is aimed at being India’s first state-of-the-art technology-enabled medical simulation and training facility for doctors, paramedics, technicians, engineers, biomedical researchers, and entrepreneurs. The Centre is also equipped to offer hands-on simulation training to the medical fraternity across the country.
The training programmes, ranging from basic to advanced, will be designed in consultation with leading doctors and experts, mainly drawn from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). The Centre is also aimed at having cutting-edge technologies that will enable advanced medical research and development in the areas of healthcare robotics and digital healthcare.
The Centre will also act as a test bed for many young start-ups in the medical field that are developing innovations in medical technology in digital medical healthcare and healthcare using AR/VR, AI, cobotics, robotics, cognitive sciences, and such.
