The flying robot which was initially used in warfare for military surveillance activities posed serious threats when exposed to civil use. Privacy & safety became the key reasons of concern as these flying machines were put for sale in public. However, the last decade witnessed a change in the attitude of people towards these machine birds.
Regulators have now become more concerned for the guidelines for the use of these devices. Their concern is an indicator of the fact that this machine is gaining popularity and is an opportunity to grab for entrepreneurs to explore the avenues where these can be used.
DRONE In Healthcare
One such avenue is drone in medical industry. The site which humans can't access, drones can easily, and even in lesser time. For countries with a less developed healthcare infrastructure, drones can do the work of service delivery of dropping medicines to the requisite places for clinics and hospitals. Additionally, it is at a speed of 90 Mph without any interception on the way for it to reach the site. Hence, drones can prove to be a boon in emergency situations.
Drones on the Test for Medical Applications
Companies like Amazon, Google and a few start ups have already started conducting field tests for drones for medical applications in remote areas. The use of drones for medical applications is still at the stage of infancy and would take time to reach up to the level for commercialization. However, it has already been used successfully in disastrous situations.
Drones on Rescue Mission
People stranded in avalanche, where doctors cannot reach directly and on time, but they can be helped by leveraging these drones. Drones can be easily modified to scan heat signatures to pinpoint and rescue stranded people.
Drones successfully delivered small aid packages after the Haitian earthquake in the year 2012, and in Papua New Guinea, Doctors without Borders used them to transport dummy TB test samples from a remote village to the city of Kerema.
Zipline is drone delivery service for clinics and hospitals throughout Western Rwanda. It was the idea of the brainchild of entrepreneur and tech innovator Keller Rinaudo, CEO of Zipline. But, the question that strikes one’s mind is that, does Zipline manufacture drones then? No, it isn't so.
Zipline drones work on an app that guides the drones to drop the packages from one place to another.
It is not the drones that Zipline or any other drone delivery service company develops but the apps on which these drones would function according to the application.
There is no doubt that there is a vast potential for drones in the medical industry. A wide range of applications exist in this field. It can be used for delivering defibrillators, for example, or tourniquets and other hemostatic stocks to people who gets injured during mass shootings.
As the range of application varies, so does there is a wide market that exists for drones in future. Successful tests and well-drafted guidelines can change the future of operations of medical industry, though there is still time for this concept of automation, but once put in place, it will bring big changes for this industry.
