2011 Winner: Dr. Bhawana Chanana for ‘low cost diapers for the elderly’

Innovative use of indigenously available raw material extracted from knitwear fabric waste and agro-residues like bagasse waste for making Adult Urinary Incontinence Diapers. This is a path breaking effort in improving the hygiene of elderly belonging to the lower income strata.

This innovation significantly reduces skin irritation that normally leads to formation of bedsores and also reduces the risk of mishaps due to involuntarily leakage of urine from the bladder in the elderly.
