Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) has developed a host of new generation medical instruments opening fresh dimensions to understand health care.
The approach of medical practitioners will now be more objective in terms of diagnosis and action of different drugs on human body, said BARC officials.
“Mobile ECG, Plethysmograph, Peripheral Pulse Analyser (3-channel), Tele Stress monitor, and Intent Detection System are few technologies BARC has developed. Many of these have been transferred to manufacturers,” said BARC director RK Sinha at a two-day meet on ‘Advanced Applications of Physiological Variability’ organised by the Electronics Division.
The Electronic Division began development work in the field of Physiological Variability in active collaboration with city’s Grant Medical College and the JJ Hospital, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (New Delhi), Father Muller Medical College (Mangalore), among others.
“These instruments, which have been tried and tested, have proved that even the Science of Homeopathy, Ayurveda and their effectiveness can be understood objectively,” Sinha said.
