SAMRIDH has fully understood Jeevtronic’s growth journey and has extended support not just financially, but also with technical assistance to help address the inherent challenges within our ecosystem. Through this partnership, we have been able to expand our reach into underserved markets, cultivate our marketing strategy, and enhance our products through advanced research and development efforts.
SAMRIDH’s initial partnership with Jeevtronics entailed providing financial assistance to enhance the sales and distribution activities of SanMitra 1000 HCT Biphasic Defibrillator. This support has been further complemented with business advisory services to help Jeevtronics in designing a commercial strategy to increase its market presence and build a steady pipeline of orders. These initiatives have further enabled them to secure affordable working capital loans from financial institutions to service the new order flow and achieve a business model for long-term sustainability and expansion to low-resourced hospitals.
deaths, per year occur in India due to sudden cardiac arrest
COVID-19 patients suffer from arrhythmias, a condition causing irregular or abnormal heart beats
ICU beds have a defibrillator
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is a condition where the heart suddenly stops, leading to a person’s death. In addition, COVID-19 patients who suffer a sudden cardiac arrest, either in or out of hospitals, are far more likely to die than those not infected with the coronavirus. To deal with cardiac arrests and arrhythmias, a medical device called ‘Defibrillator’ helps restore the normal heart rhythm by applying a high voltage shock across the heart. However, most hospitals in India do not have access to a defibrillator. In addition, India accounts for the highest global deaths in road accidents. Since accident trauma patients are more likely to go into cardiac arrest, the presence of defibrillators in trauma ambulances is critical. Yet, only about 25% of total ambulances have defibrillators.
World’s first triple-powered cost-effective defibrillator
Lack of reliable electricity, high-battery replacement costs, poor quality of refurbished devices, and lack of affordability are primary causes for the inadequate access to defibrillators in India. Jeevtronics offers a low maintenance, cost-effective, lifesaving, hand-cranked defibrillator – SanMitra 1000 HCT Biphasic Defibrillator. It can be charged from the AC mains within 6-7 seconds and is priced at less than 25% of conventional defibrillators. SAMRIDH’s support is enabling Jeevtronics to increase accessibility to this life-saving device in resource-constrained hospitals in semi-urban and rural areas. Its longevity, affordability, and ability to operate without electricity enables healthcare workers to provide quality care and avoid preventable deaths. Jeevtronics is also working on product upgrades for ambulances and IoT-enabled models to maximize the benefits, resulting in overall cost savings for the end-user.
