Title of the Innovation: NAVRAKSHAK ULTRA PPE KIT

Brief About Innovation


Indian Navy’s ‘NavRakshak PPE’ is now India's well-established and famous PPE brand. They have developed the technology during India’s PPE crisis. NavRakshak version 1 (Gown type) was unlaminated, untapped and had a detachable hood. Version 2 was introduced with a coverall designing the same fabric. Thousands of healthcare workers from all states and union territories were relieved from heat-related injuries due to NavRakshak. The PPE is comfortable, breathable and proven to be protective. The design is unique with a detachable, tucked-in headgear and multiple securing elastics/ piping, which help smooth movement, prevent accidental PPE failure and facilitate noiseless performance. Even with stitched seams and uncoated fabric, the PPE scored 6/6, equivalent to 20 kPa pressure in the Synthetic Blood Penetration resistance test (SBPRT).After the success of Version 1 and Version 2, provisions have been made for users who want to use seam-sealed, taped and breathable NavRakshak PPE.

The success of any innovation lies in sustainability and continuous development. To contribute more towards India’s Covid-fight, ‘NavRakshak Ultra’-the ultrasonic seam-sealed and taped, breathable PPE by Technology Development Acceleration Cell of Indian Navy is introduced herewith.
