During his school vacations, he had to work at his village farm. He felt excruciating back pain shooting through his body just after a few minutes of working. He realized that this was the tale of every farmer in the country.
He says that doctors' advice of getting good rest after a hard labor was next to impossible for farmers and workers. That kick-started within him to think in different ways and try hundreds of attempts to innovate a device that could solve the issue.
The end result? The birth of the ‘JaipurBelt' (Belt System for Body Support).
"I sent my idea to National Innovations Foundation and got the needed support for prototype development and patent filing. Later I sent the details of the functional prototype to Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore for Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY) Fellowship. I got through them. That gave me enough confidence of commercializing the device. I knew what had to be done but didn't know how and where," recalls Mr Ganesh, co-founder, Newndra Innovations, which was started in 2014.
With headquarters in Jaipur, Newndra is a disruptive and frugal innovation-based company involved in commercializing products that has the potential for the betterment of health and lives of people, who are involved in manual labor work.
