NRDC licenses Nav-Rakshak PPE suit manufacturing know how to Indian Garment Company

 

New Delhi: The National Research Development Corporation (NRDC), has signed a technology licensing agreement for the manufacturing know-how of a Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Suit named as Nav Rakshak with M/s Indian Garment Company which is an Agra based apparel manufacturing entity . The entity is already manufacturing PPE kits in and around Agra and supplying to various hospitals and has now proposed an annual production target of over one million PPE kits using the licensed know-how of NavRakshak to meet the increased requirement of PPEs enforced by COVID crisis.

The agreement was signed by Dr. H Purushotham, CMD, NRDC with Mr. Rajesh Nayyar, owner of Indian Garment Company at the NRDC Headquarters, New Delhi. The occasion was graced by representatives from Indian Navy and Ministry of Defence including Surg. Rear Admiral Dr. G Vishwanath (ADGMS(N)), Col. Anuj Garg (Col QA (IPF Cell)/DGQA) and Surg. Lt. Cdr. Arnab Ghosh (Principal Inventor of NavRakshak). Senior officials from NRDC which included Sh. D. C. Joshi (Chief- Business Development), Dr. Sanjeeva K Majumdar (Manager- IPR & Incubation Activities) and Ms. Pooja Goel (Manager- Finance & Accounts) were also present.
 
NavRakshak PPE has been developed principally by Dr. Arnab Ghosh who is also a Naval Doctor incorporating his personal experiences in using the PPE for the comfort and protection of the doctors. It incorporates superior quality breathable fabric to make the PPE suit while its design innovation eliminates the need of costly taping and sealing of the seam which is otherwise needed in other PPEs available in the market.
 
This makes it an attractive proposition to be used by the frontline health workers who are required to wear these suits for long hours and face extreme discomfort while working. The prototype development earlier took place at Naval Dockyard, Mumbai and it was tested and certified at the Institute of Nuclear Medicine & Allied Sciences (INMAS), DRDO, an accredited lab authorized by Ministry of Textile currently in India for PPE prototype sample testing as per the prevailing ISO standards & Ministry of Health & Family Welfare/Ministry of Textile guidelines. The fabric, suit and seam have been found to meet the synthetic blood penetration resistance criteria comfortably.
