Medical alert system – Business plan

I have been thinking of creating a business plan. An idea struck my mind today and its about developing a medical alert system for old people when suddenly something happens to them and they are not even in a condition to call someone . Old people are getting more and more independent because of numerous reasons. And because of sudden problems they generally get because of the old age its impractical to always be monitored. I was thinking of developing a device for such elderly people so that whenever they feel emergency help they could get connected to 24*7 helpline and get immediate help. Also suddenly when they fall down because of  some stroke or anything and are unconscious even to call or press buttons in device the device should automatically send alert signal to the helpline number.

I searched about this kind of device and system if it already existed . And yes to my surprise it does. 🙁 . Its a very good system and they have done it well.. exactly the way i had the plan in my mind. The company name is Brick House Alert . Their specialization is in Medical Alert system.

Fleet management – what it is?

Let me give you guys a background here. Now that i am an MBA student there are numerous management stuff i have been going through and today i found an interesting management field called Fleet management . Going deeper in knowing about this i have gotten some information which made my concepts clear about this new field of management – Fleet management. The information below about fleet management has been taken from this site

Fleet management, also known as fleet maintenance, is a standard of procedure, with a goal to keep a company or agency’s multiple vehicles and their operators in top-running condition. One of the highest costs of doing business is labor, followed closely by mobile assets including cars, vans, trucks, even boats and airplanes. Fleet management also covers large, moveable equipment related to the operation of the organization.

The primary objective of fleet management is twofold:

  • Establish close monitoring by home base of drivers in the field, for the most efficient and effective delivery of goods and services.
  • Control the costs of operating and maintaining vehicles and equipment, to retain their values and extend their useful lives.

Fleet management is about establishing the best possible level of control over an inconsistent environment, where factors such as weather, traffic, breakdown, customer demand and availability of manpower and equipment can change from day to day or hour to hour.

How GPS Tracking Helps Fleet Management

GPS tracking is the preferred and most up-to-date method of fleet management. GPS tracking systems, which use U.S. Department of Defense satellites for location and navigation, are accurate and reliable and greatly reduce incidents of human error.

By a mathematical formula called triangulation, the GPS tracking receiver will find its location, usually within a few feet of accuracy. Incremental position updates are made every few seconds or minutes.

The data collected includes:

  • Day and time
  • Directional heading
  • Latitude and longitude (or street address)
  • Duration of stops
  • Speed of the vehicle
  • Miles logged

Mindset !

As my friend was passing by an elephant, he suddenly stopped, confused by
the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope
tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the
elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to
but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked
why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no
attempt to get away.

“Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same
size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they
grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They
believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.” My
friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their
bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where
they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief
that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before? So
make an attempt to grow further…. Why shouldn’t we try it again?

“YOUR ATTEMPT MAY FAIL, BUT NEVER FAIL TO MAKE AN ATTEMPT.”

Rod Penetrates man, shoulder to leg – Survives

The thought of a six-footlong iron rod falling from the sky and piercing through your stomach is the stuff nightmares are made of. And this is exactly what 21-year-old construction worker Santosh Kumar survived on December 1.

Stell rod penetrates Man- survives

    An unskilled worker from Bihar, India, Kumar had come to Pune ,India, a month ago seeking employment and was working at a construction site in the city. On the morning of December 1, when Kumar walked out of an under-construction building, he was hit by a six-foot-long iron rod that had slipped from a pulley ferrying the rods to the seventh floor.

    “The rod penetrated through his right shoulder to come out from the right arm, further pierced through the right side of his abdomen and traversed diagonally to come out of his left groin and went into the thigh,” said senior gastro-intestinal surgeon Gajanan Wagholikar who operated on Kumar.

    Wagholikar was assisted by senior orthopaedic surgeons J C Purohit and Deepali Gonjari, in the five-and-a-half-hour-long surgery. Kumar was grounded by the impact and lay immobilised in an odd position, writhing in agony. “Shifting the victim, in itself, was an ordeal. He had to be carried in the same position,” Wagholikar added.

    “Medical protocol is that the impaling object has to be removed only in the operation theatre, after ascertaining the damage it has done,” said Wagholikar. The rod had penetrated Kumar’s intestines in multiple locations and had made 16 holes. “Two segments of the intestine were badly damaged. While they had to be sacrificed and healthy intestine reconnected, the other holes were closed. After the operation, the patient registered a slow and steady recovery,” said Wagholikar.

    Injuries with a penetrating object lodged in the body are known as impalement injuries and are extremely rare in surgical trauma practice.
