The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and the Institute of Nuclear Medicine & Allied Sciences (INMAS), DRDO, have created ‘RAKSHITA’ – a bike ambulance to support critical evacuation requirements of security force personnel in the time kd medical emergency or battle injury in war zones. This bike will be launched tomorrow in Delhi.
The bike has been formulated when the CRPF recognized a need for bikes to reach quickly to the narrow roads in tensed areas, especially in the Naxalite zones. There have been instances where medical facilities couldn’t reach on right time and caused delay in medical assistance.
The INMAS works in the area of biomedical and clinical research. It is the Research and Development (R&D) wing of Ministry of Defence Government of India.
