Why do we need NOVEL?

The sight of this humongous crowd triggered a thought: How will the Govt. officials / medical staff segregate probable corona infected patients from such a huge number of people? With the current technology available at hand, even the first level of detection is time consuming as one has to check the body temperature, decipher the reading and then decide further as to who can be let go and who needs to be quarantined. Clearly we needed something that is quick, easy and affordable.

What makes NOVEL unique?

NOVEL simply speeds up the first level of detection and segregation. Just by looking at the color of the indicator one can decide who needs further check up and who can be let go. The simplicity of NOVEL makes it a product for the common mass. Even an illiterate can understand what the color is indicating thus making this device usable by people who are not trained medical practitioners.






Patent has already been applied for NOVEL. The electronics can be made available with circuit, software code and component details along with the 3D CAD data of the enclosure which can be 3D printed and assembled without screws for immediate deployment.

How can NOVEL reach the masses?

NOVEL has to be mass produced at a very large scale, both quickly and cost effectively to be able to be distributed pan India. If you are reading this then you can help us reach higher authorities in Govt. of India by spreading awareness about NOVEL and its benefits by sharing this post through your social media such as twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Instagram etc. While sharing, kindly use #NOVELscanner #designedbypaul in your post.
