Innovation Description :
The smart cervical collar is an improvisation in the original collar where a small fan at the front is attached. The fan serves to regulate the temperature and humidity in the gap between the neck and the collar. An additional air channel has been provisioned to allow fresh air to be release at the back of the neck. This idea is a result of her effort to help her grandmother who was suffering from cervical spondylosis.
She wants to become a scientist and work for welfare of under privileged people. She is highly motivated by the works and quotes of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam.
