New Delhi [India], Oct. 12 (ANI): In order to bridge the digital gap in the existing healthcare delivery eco-system, Medi Tech Innovations, a health-care IT start-up has launched the 'Solar Powered Health Care Screening Kits' for the Indian armed forces and para-military.

This specially designed kit helps keep a record of the vital information such as blood sugar level, blood pressure, heart rhythm of the people posted in remote locations.

As per news reports, heart attacks killed three-times more CRPF men than anti-Maoist operations. The Solar Powered Health Care Screening Kit can screen 'Jawans' for cardiac risks through portable medical devices and prevent loss of lives."
