Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is set to launch Amaran, an a robot prototype to help farmers pluck coconuts, and Mudra, hand gesture-based wheelchair for patients with immobility, to offer robotic solutions to human problems. "Initially, we developed a wheel chair to help people with disabilities who cannot move their limbs due to spinal cord injury . The conventional control mechanism of using joy stick requires the user to hold it and exert some force. Now, we have developed the hand orthosis device with its advanced palm holding and Electrooculogram (EOG) signals based on eye movement which helps the paraplegics, he said. "We have filed a patent. Once we get the patent, we will go for commercial launch", said Dr. Rajesh M Kannan, Director, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham Humanitarian Technology (HuT).
