On January 13, 2021, AMMACHI Labs and Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences & Research Center launched an ultra low cost respiratory protection system for doctors and health workers on the frontlines: PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator.) The innovation was designed by engineers during a time when PPE (personal protective equipment) was scarce and costly. For the initial phase, 20 PAPRs will be tested by medical professionals at AIMS. Once all the feedback and design improvements have been incorporated, the PAPR will be productized by Omnex Inc. Several dignitaries took part in the virtual event, that was live-streamed from Amrita Hospital.
