Adi Shankara Institute of Engineering and Technology successfully completed the work on the prototype of a cost-effective yet feature-rich, high-end ventilator, at the behest of Dr V R Gowrishankar, Administrator & CEO, Sringeri Mutt & it’s properties. The startups at the TBI, Adi Shankara Institute of Engineering and Technology, Kalady: iCube Design Studio, RIOD Logic Pvt. Ltd. and Machbee, under the guidance of Prof. Ajay Basil (Nodal Officer, TBI & IEDC) have named their ingenious product, Adishankara JeevaVayu in acknowledgement of the impetus received from Dr V R Gowrishankar, Administrator & CEO, Sringeri Mutt & it’s properties. The team also thanked Sri K. Anand, Managing Trustee of Adi Sankara Trust and Prof Jaisankar, COO for their continuous support in their noble venture.

Adishankara_JeevaVayu , is the first emergency ventilator developed by an engineering institute under APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University, from the State of Kerala and one among the few from the country with all essential ventilator condition monitoring and control mechanisms. The innovative product accommodates all technical specifications like pressure monitoring, volume control, airflow monitoring and backup battery mechanisms. In addition to this, Adishankara JeevaVayu provides visual and audio alarm system for low supply pressure, airway pressure, leakage detection, power failure, and low battery indication. ASIET is now on the road to release an android app with similar functionalities capable of reassuring the convalescing COVID-19 patients.

Adi Shankara Institute of Engineering is gearing itself up for the industrial production of JeevaVayu since the product’s prototype has proved its worth and efficiency. Being an essential life-supporting medical equipment that is in short supply, Sringeri Mutt, Karnataka and Adi Shankara Trust, Kalady have committed themselves in spearheading the mass production of Adishankara JeevaVayu
