Genrobotics chosen among top 3 Indian startups at global AI summit

Genrobotics chosen among  top 3 Indian startups at global AI summit

Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 16 (UNI) Genrobotics, the Kerala-based startup internationally acclaimed for leveraging technology for social change, has been adjudged among top three Artificial Intelligence (AI) startups of India at the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) Summit 2023, organised by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology in New Delhi.
Genrobotic’s G-Gaiter Robotic Technology won the award in ‘AI Gamechangers’ category at the December 12–14 summit held at Bharat Mandapam, inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
S Krishnan, Secretary, Ministry of Electronics and IT presented the award to Afsal Muttikkal, Regional Director, Genrobotics Medical and Mobility, and Arun Dominic, Regional Business Development Manager. Abhishek Singh, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Electronics and IT, was also present.
Genrobotics was honoured for its outstanding innovation in healthcare by developing G Gaiter --- an advanced AI-powered robotic gait trainer. G Gaiter trains people who lost mobility due to stroke, spinal injury, accidents, Parkinson’s disease and similar conditions to recover faster with minimal dependency on others.
Afsal Muttikkal said this coveted honour will inspire Genrobotics in its onward journey, marked by dedicated efforts to develop technology-driven products that ensure world-class neuro-rehabilitation treatment for patients with limited mobility.
He said that within a short span of time, G Gaiter has proved to be a highly effective tool that helps rehabilitation of individuals who have lost mobility due to various conditions.
“Unlike traditional physiotherapy treatments that can extend over the years, the G Gaiter, through its incorporation of AI and cutting-edge robotic technology, makes rehabilitation faster. Genrobotics also secured the Medically Made in India Innovation 2023 Golden Award for G Gaiter earlier in July this year,” Muttikkal added.
Genrobotics is currently collaborating with major hospital chains in India, including Aster, to deploy the G Gaiter robotic gait trainer in their Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation departments.
The technology has the approval of the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation, the national regulator for medical devices, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
Recently, the General Hospital in the state capital has become the first government hospital in the country to deploy G Gaiter. The state government also plans to deploy G Gaiter at its medical college hospitals in Kozhikode, Thrissur and Kottayam.
G Gaiter, already installed by the Aster Group at its hospitals in Kerala, is seen as a significant step in the direction of utilising robotic technology in the rehabilitation of patients with limited mobility.
