InnAccel is a medical technology company, incorporated in 2012. Their respiratory support device, Saans, the world’s first infrastructure-independent, easy-to-use, portable, neonatal/pediatric CPAP + HFNC system, provides lifesaving breathing support to children across all hospital settings, including low-resource centers, as well as during transport. The Saans device features an in-built compressor and blender, battery backup for up to 4-6 hours, and compatibility with all standard oxygen sources and patient interfaces, making it a versatile breathing support system for children.

With support from SAMRIDH, InnAccel and the Center for Cellular and Molecular Platforms (C-CAMP) have partnered to augment neonatal/pediatric healthcare in Assam. Through this project, 307 Saans devices with consumables will be deployed across all districts of the State. The deployment will cover NICUs and PICUs in Medical Colleges and District Hospitals, as well as District ambulances. It will universalize infant access to breathing support to reduce infant mortality. Furthermore, the project will strengthen the public healthcare system to better handle newborn and pediatric care for subsequent COVID-19 surges. In addition, SAMRIDH is also supporting InnAccel in building a dedicated commercial and support team to drive the adoption of Saans across India. In the near term, this team would focus on scaling for COVID-19 support, which will bridge the gap in access to pediatric and neonatal breathing support.
