HEALTHY INDIA - SWR OPEN HEALTH KIOSKS AT RAILWAY STATIONS


HEALTH CHECK UP KIOSKS LAUNCHED AT FIVE MORE RAILWAY STATIONS OVER HUBBALLI DIVISION

In order to promote new ideas for improving passenger experience at stations, provide useful amenities to passengers, Hubballi Division in SWR has allotted   space for Health Checkup Kiosks at Dharwad, Belagavi, Vasco da Gama, Ballari & Hosapete Railway Stations recently for the benefit of passengers. These kiosks have been set up at these railway stations which will benefit the passengers and also generate Non Fare Revenue to the Railways. Earlier, in the month of January, o­ne kiosk was installed at Hubballi Railway Station and is receiving good response from the public.  

The Health Check Up Kiosk named Pulse Active Station consisting of a network of Internet of Things (IOT) based smart kiosk will generate a report with 21 body parameters and risk indicators for lifestyle diseases. The body parameters include physical dimensions such as Height, Weight, BMI as well as cardiac health parameters including Blood Pressure, SPO2 and Pulse Rate with Body Composition Analysis for Body Fat percentage, Mineral Content, Muscle and Bone Strength and Body Water content. The lifestyle disease indicators include for Diabetes, Osteoarthritis, Cardiac issues and similar issues. Basic tests for o­ne's wellness along with health parameters can be done by this Kiosk starting from Rs.50 to Rs.100/- depending o­n the kind of test chosen by them.

Shri A.K. Singh, General Manager /SWR said that in the busy life, finding time for health check up is difficult and many a times, same is being postponed/not done frequently by public. Now with this health check up Kiosks, passengers at the stations can undergo these checks in the waiting time at stations and get basic health reports. If any deviation noticed in their health parameters from prescribed/normal range, they can consult doctors for further course of action.
