Kamal kichad me khilta hai.
An equivalent expression in English would be Lotus blooms in muck or as an optimistic opportunist BETWEENLINES, more appropriately, where there's muck there's brass. It is certainly a human condition, which is more than the mere act of nitpicking to an adventure of solution finding, as with many instances in our past. Be it projects or conversations eventually it evolves into creative progressive thinking towards sensible solutions.
In an atmosphere of confusion and uncertainties of COVID 19, suspended between carelessness and anxiety, we found our balance and peace in various initiatives seeking and resonating clarity. During which we realized that an Urban Plug in could be a means to quickly deploy upgradation measures to our urban spaces and to regain our public life.
Two of the most critical commissions that the BETWEENLINES is handling today bear the tag line Products for safe Social interaction in Open Spaces & Large Scale Public Gathering; revival of associated informal economy and Health Care: Accessible in Rural Area and Affordable in Urban Areas though a collaboration with MSMEs.
One of the product design solutions emerging from the later is an Isolation Ward's water bubble for a startup ENIGMA INNOVATIONS pvt.ltd, based out of Bengaluru. The awareness to reuse plastic has suddenly increased, the capacity to recycle them are sufficient and their ability to increase in need is high. Hence the material chosen was plastic to increase the consumption of waste but also to ease operations such as sanitizing or decontamination. In the longer run, it is to aimed to connect various MSME's economic and mobility network. A double membrane structure with a cavity with water fill in the middle is achieved through injection mould based manufacturing process which makes it extremely light to transport and be packed into a container in case of shipping. The water which is filled in the cavity of the walls to weigh it down during installation and operation, works as a thermal barrier and resembles to a mother's womb.
Although it is designed as three main components and many add-ons such as Oxygen cylinder compartment, Incinerator to manage medical waste, Dewat module for the sewage, Hybrid solar system for electricity and heating water for consumption and to assist in regulating the internal environment, Vaporizer to sanitize and recycle water for reuse and a Multi compartment storage tank for storing water of different nature. All integration nodes are pre-designed and integrated to the main components through systematic planning. This systemic planning has also given rise to a self sustaining model with minimal input, after its launching.
It does have an allocated space for the care giver to rest and wait between the routine of care giving. While the pod is designed in a way that all service repairs needed during the operations can be handled by service doors outside the ward, hence reducing the instances of accidental transfer or spread. Exchange of other medical and care giving demands are catered through double door self sanitizing compartments. A few more independent and technology assisted components ensures a human balance between containment, isolation and need for suitable care without the fear of contamination or spread. Because of the nature of construction, it can by itself float on water, making it easy to deploy them near water front and does not require anything beyond anchoring, making this amphibious with high degree of versatility and adaptability.
