North Eastern Indra Gandhi Regional Institue of Health and Medical Sciences (NEIGRHMS)
Affiliated Ministry: DBT, Govt. of India
Type of technology development: Indigenous
Does the technology help in replacing any import items currently
procured from outside India?
Does the technology have export potential? Yes
Category of Technology developed: Import Substitution
Stage of Development: Prototype Level
Please describe in detail including the TRL Level:
The CAD model of the device is completed. Computational analysis of the different components of the device and its assembly are under process. A 3D printed working model to be made subject to improvements in design and analysis alongside exploring different manufacturing options. TRL level -4 (Small Scale prototyping)


Applications: To achieve instant hemostasis at the puncture site during cardiovascular procedures
Advantages: Flexibility to the surgeon in choosing between one or two suture depending on the size of puncture site Handy operating mechanism with less number of moving components. Useful for catheterization procedures with different sheath sizes 5F to 21F sheaths Easy to learn and adapt, and the surgeon becomes an expert within a short period Costeffective design by cutting down the cost of a device used for the second suture single device for two sutures Three different functionalities within the single device

I-Mitra(आई-मित्र) Welcomes You..
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
