Remote-Controlled Rice Transplanter

NIB III Winner


The idea addresses two significant healthcare challenges affecting a considerable portion of the global population. Firstly, malocclusion, impacting 56% of individuals worldwide, leads to various dental issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, and jaw pain. Traditional braces, while effective, can be uncomfortable and are not recommended by dentists after a certain age. Secondly, approximately 61.7 million people suffer from fractures in their hands, feet, or ankles, requiring the use of traditional casts for 4-10 weeks, which can cause discomfort and inconvenience.

To address these challenges, the proposal suggests using dental aligners instead of traditional braces for treating malocclusion. These aligners offer advantages such as ease of removal and cleaning, reduced visibility, and fewer required doctor visits. Additionally, 3D-printed casts are proposed as an alternative to traditional casts for bone fractures. These casts offer benefits such as better fit, breathability, removability, water resistance, comfort, reduced itchiness, and lighter weight. By introducing these innovative solutions, the idea aims to improve patient comfort, treatment effectiveness, and overall healthcare experience for individuals suffering from malocclusion and bone fractures.
