Rentokil PCI unveils Anti- Mosquito Racquet to keep diseases like Malaria, Dengue & Zika at bay



29th October 2021, Mumbai: The World Health Organization places mosquitoes among the top threats to public health, especially in developing countries. Research shows that mosquitoes are responsible for 830,000 human deaths annually. Controlling mosquito-transmitted diseases must therefore be a priority, requiring government supervision, but also the involvement of civil society, the private sector and participation of the general public. Keeping that in mind, Rentokil PCI unveils a one-of-its-kind Anti-Mosquito Racquet under its Consumer Products Brand - PCI.A picture containing text, clipart

Solve.Care and AliveCor Partner to Connect KardiaMobile Users with Physicians on Global Telehealth Exchange

 Collaboration provides KardiaMobile users quick access to doctors worldwide for consultations about their ECG readings


National, October 28, 2021 - Solve.Care announced today that they have partnered with AliveCor to enable users of AliveCor’s KardiaMobile devices and services to easily book teleconsultations with physicians on the Global Telehealth Exchange (GTHE) network. Through this partnership, physicians on the network will be able to seamlessly access users’ KardiaMobile electrocardiogram (ECG) readings, upon their consent. The KardiaMobile 6L device is the first and only six-lead personal ECG cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It detects more arrhythmias than any other personal ECG device. GTHE is an open global cross-border telehealth network that enables doctors and patients to connect worldwide.


The partnership will see KardiaMobile devices integrated with Solve.Care’s blockchain platform to enable its users to connect with a physician on GTHE directly through the Kardia app to share their ECG readings during their teleconsultations. As physicians have access to previous ECG readings stored by KardiaMobile, this will provide physicians with a more complete understanding of the patient's symptoms to facilitate more effective ongoing care.  As GTHE is built using blockchain technology, all data is fully secured and remains in control of the patient.


Conversely, GTHE patients can purchase KardiaMobile devices directly in their Care.Wallet using SOLVE tokens, Solve.Care’s native digital currency that is used to pay for healthcare services. Care.Wallet is Solve.Care’s healthcare management app (available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store) that is used to access various healthcare networks, including GTHE.


The agreement facilitates greater access to care, widening their choice of instantly booking a tele-consult with any specialized physician throughout the world directly through their mobile devices.


Mark Bogart, Senior Vice President, U.S. Healthcare, AliveCor said, “Our partnership with Solve.Care is important to us as it provides an additional layer of peace of mind to our KardiaMobile users who wish to connect with physicians through the Solve.Care Global Telehealth Exchange network.”


Pradeep Goel, CEO of Solve.Care said, “The healthcare industry is rapidly moving towards digitization. But we should never lose sight that the end-goal of healthcare is to improve the quality of life for the patient. This collaboration will immensely improve the quality of care for users of Care Networks on the Solve.Care Platform. With easy access to patients’ ECG readings, physicians can provide better care to patients on GTHE, as well as the Diabetes Care Network, as patients with type 2 diabetes are at greater risk of cardiovascular diseases.


GTHE was recently launched in India in September 2021, with HealthLink Technologies as the official distributor. This partnership announcement is welcome news to the over 260 million heart patients, and those at risk, enabling them to directly connect and have a tele-consult with a doctor for their ECG readings, without having to visit a hospital.


This service is expected to be made available to the market in Q1 of 2022. GTHE is currently available in 27 countries and growing. Users can access GTHE via Care.Wallet, downloadable at the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Move over ‘natural’; choose certified organic products for your babies with goodnessme organic, certified pure, and zero toxin products


The outermost layer of baby’s skin is 30% thinner than that of adults. Hence, it is super sensitive and permeable. That is why it is necessary to choose products which are made from pure ingredients and are extremely safe. Organic, as we know, is the purest form of nature, grown without any harmful chemicals, synthetic pesticides, or fertilisers – just how Mother Nature intended. And zero toxins ensure the products are super safe to use.


Products available in the market today that claim to be natural may not be 100% safe (product makers could include only 0.01% ingredients that are ‘natural’ to be able to market it as such). This could mean that these so-called ‘natural’ products may still contain harmful preservatives and chemicals or include toxic ingredients grown using pesticides.


Understanding the dilemma of parents, the house of Godrej Consumer Products has introduced goodnessme, a premium range of certified products made from organic ingredients and zero toxins for sensitive baby skin.


goodnessme products have been formulated keeping harmful chemicals as far away as possible. The range has taken over 3 years of research and testing to develop, with ingredients having been sourced from all around the world. The baby skin care range is Certified COSMOS Organic by ECOCERT, France – one of the world’s largest organic certification organisations. The certification can only be achieved after passing through stringent compliance processes including raw material testing, formulation approvals, even annual factory audits, including banning more than 1300 ingredients deemed not fit for use for baby products as per European standards. It’s no surprise, then, that the products don’t include any toxins, parabens, petroleum, phthalates, synthetic fragrance, mineral oil, or silicones, ensuring 100% transparency and re-establishing the promise of purity.


goodnessme products also go through rigorous testing outside of the European standards and are hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested, paediatrician certified, vegan and cruelty-free, making them super mild and safe to protect the delicate skin of babies.


Meant for little ones between 0-2 years, the goodnessme range includes a variety of products in multiple SKU’s like certified organic baby soap; certified organic baby oil; certified organic baby moisturizer; certified organic multipurpose baby cream; certified organic baby head-to-toe wash, and so on.

RapiPay strengthens its Micro ATM market, has sold over one lakh Micro ATMs in first year of launch

 To develop Micro ATMs as a hybrid device that will work as a POS machine 


Mumbai, 25 Oct 2021: RapiPay, one of the leading assisted payments Fintech companies announced that it has sold over one lakh Micro ATMs since it began operations last year. This indicates that the company is well on track of its expansion plan to install 5 Lakhs micro-ATMs in the coming years. 

As technology-led developments are taking place at a faster pace, RapiPay is all set to make micro-ATMs as hybrid devices that will work as mPOS i.e. Mobile Point of Sale machines. This will enable the consumers to swipe not just their debit card but also credit card for any purchase/transaction at a RapiPay outlet. 

"RapiPay Micro ATMs are revolutionary in comparison to the conventional ATMs and offers utmost ease to the consumers enabling them to withdraw cash and do other similar banking activities at any RapiPay Direct Business Outlet. We have also seen a rise in the daily average transaction value for micro-ATMs from Rs. 3200 in Sep 2020 to Rs. 3800 in Sep 2021.," RapiPay CEO, Nipun Jain said.

Mr. Jain further added that India has on an average 20 ATMs for 1 Lakh people. The way Micro ATMs are growing and being accepted we will take this average to 50 ATMs for 1 Lakh people.

The micro-ATMs were instrumental in facilitating cash withdrawals during the first and second Covid-19 wave, especially for withdrawal of the government's disbursement into Jan Dhan accounts of workers, laborers, and farmers, among others, who were out of work and needed cash.

According to the Reserve Bank of India data, of the 2.4 lakh ATMs in the country, only 19 per cent have been deployed in rural areas, where 62 per cent of the Indian population resides. With the low penetration of ATMs in rural areas, Micro ATMs are bridging the demand supply gap. As a result, there is a growing demand and higher penetration for micro-ATMs to reach the last-mile of the country and address the problems faced by the rural population in fulfilling their cash withdrawal requirement.

About RapiPay

S.K. Narvar promoted RapiPay Fintech Pvt. Ltd., is instrumental in growing financial inclusion services in the country with services like Money Transfer, Aadhaar Enabled Payment System (AEPS), Micro ATM, Payments and many more. With a nationwide network of over 3 lakhs DBOs, RapiPay is providing Banking and Financial services to more than 3 crore underbanked consumers every month.
