E Farm: Connecting Farmers with Urban Consumers

27th August 2020
"E Farm is the Nepal's largest digital platform where farmers and customer directly connect with each other."

E Farm is Nepal's largest digital platform where farmers and customer directly connect with each other. It is a platform where people in the capital city can order the vegetables, fruits and meat products from their home, and the order will be received within 24 hours at their doorstep.

Addressing the problems faced by local products in the market, E farm has taken an innovative step of commercializing the locally produced products through an online or digital platform. E farm has been purchasing the locally produced products from various rural areas throughout the nation and selling it to the consumers in the capital. They also have a farm of their own in Dhapakhel, Lalitpur where they produce fruits and vegetables on their own.

E farm has been purchasing goats from Letang and Dhankuta; ghee from Ilam; rice from Kaski; and Marsi rice, flour, black rice, dry apple, pulses, oats, maize, mustard oil from Jumla and have been delivering it to the consumer’s doorstep. E farm has been providing its service even during this COVID-19 Pandemic

One can place an order by logging into www.efarm.live or through their Facebook page or Instagram account; and, can pay via digital wallets or bank cards. Likewise, the farmers willing to collaborate and sell their products through efarm can contact them on 977-1-5229130. 

The objective of E farm is to provide suitable market price to farmers and to sell quality products to the consumers,” said the founder of E farm Parmeshwar Shrestha. “We are playing the role of a bridge between consumers and farmers. Most of the farmers cannot reach their consumers directly. However, we are now directly connecting farmers to the consumers.”

Online Learning Effect Electronic Device Usage to Rise

16th August 2020
"Usage of video-conferencing apps like Zoom, Google Meet, etc. increases by more than 10 times."

Online or distance education, simply, is the teaching and learning process done via different online medium be it audio conference, video conference, articles, etc. Its history goes way back to 1982 when Western Behavioral Sciences Institute, California exercised computer conferencing to provide first ever online college programs. Later on, along with the development in technology and internet browsers, online education via video and audio conferences, videos, websites and articles evolved.

Various universities and colleges throughout the world have been offering online education in one form or another for a long time. Even though distance learning was introduced decades ago, it popularized largely after the entire world underwent lockdown due to the fear of contagious spread of COVID-19, a lethal virus, and students had to study from home.

After pandemic, the online education system replaced the traditional educational system. The imposition of lockdown prohibited people from going out except for urgent cases; so, physical educational system were replaced by online system. Classes, assignments, lectures, discussions, projects, research, examinations and everything had to be done and submitted online; as a result, the use of electronic gadgets like Smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop, etc. escalated. People from all around the world, especially students, teachers and workers, had an increase in their screentime be it in smartphones or laptops or desktop. The usage of e-gadgets surged along with people's dependency on it for official and personal purpose.

Along with the use of electronic gadgets, the use of various video-conferencing applications like Zoom, Google Meet, etc. on which the classes were conducted increased by more than ten times. 

However, experts believe that increase in screen time of students from an elementary level child to an university level student may lead to various health related problems. Some of the major health issues that have resulted are eye strain, technostress, frustration, dullness, etc. Thereupon, they have suggested students to try and reduce their screentime as much as possible and try to engage themselves in something non-digital.

What Medical Devices Should I Have At Home

20th August 2020
"Taking care of your health is now in your own hands."

Going for a regular check-up of the blood sugar level, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and even pulse rate in a hospital is a tedious task if it must be done on a daily basis and sometimes multiple times in a single day. So to omit this necessity to visit hospitals, path labs for these minor but necessary indicators of our health there are various portable medical devices in the market, which can be easily used at our home by us. This not only saves our time and money but the use of such home medical devices will prevent you from getting infected from other diseases in the hospital itself.

Here are the lists of the essential home medical equipment one must have in their house for regular monitoring or for some emergency situations:

1)Digital Thermometer

Must have medical devices at home for well-being

It is the most common medical device we find in almost every house. A digital thermometer is used to check and monitor the body temperature in decimal points, for an accurate and specific reading. They are easier to read and some are built with timer or alarms for different uses. They run on battery and it can be replaced when required. These digital thermometers can be bought from any medical store in the market.

 

2)Pulse Oximeter

Must have medical devices at home for well-being

This is small equipment that clips onto a person’s finger, pulse oximeter measures pulse and the percentage of oxygen in the blood. It is mostly used for monitoring patients in hospital including those who have had some surgeries or by people with respiratory problems staying at home. This device helps us to decide whether the patient needs extra oxygen. A pulse oximeter runs on battery and provides real-time results on a small LED (light-emitting diode) display on the device itself. Relying only on clinical tests or waiting for advanced symptoms like shortness of breath to occur may delay the treatment and the patient may become critical due to the loss of this precious time. Regular monitoring of oxygen level will help us to take actions sooner instead of waiting for shortness of breath or pneumonia to occur.

 

3) Digital Blood Pressure Meter

Must have medical devices at home for well-being

Many people still visit clinics for their Blood pressure checked in Nepal. This is because they don’t have an idea about the digital Bp machine and to operate the manual Bp machine one must be trained. So having the digital BP meter in the home will make it easier to monitor one’s Bp level whenever you want. This is to manage certain health conditions by measuring it, keeping a log of the measurement to show to the doctor and if you take medicines to control your blood pressure, it will help document if they are working. Measuring your blood pressure at home is a good way to take part in managing your health.

 

4)Glucometer

Must have medical devices at home for well-being

A glucometer is a small, portable machine that's used to measure sugar level in the blood (also known as the blood glucose level). People with diabetes often use a blood glucose meter to help them manage their condition. As other devices above it also run on battery and testing the blood sugar level is so simple that anyone can do it when required. It consists of the test strip which is placed on the glucometer then a small lancing device is used to draw blood without pain from the patient's finger then the blood which will be held on the edge of the test strip then the glucometer will give the result after few seconds. In this way, we will get the monitoring of glucose level at home without any hassle. This device can be bought from any medical store.

 

5) First Aid Kit/Emergency Medical Supplies

Must have medical devices at home for well-being

Last but not least is the emergency medicine supplies and First Aid kit which are very important for the unknown emergencies that may occur in the future. Some of the international standard first aid kits or devices include bandages, ace bandage, compression stocking, snakebite kit, heating pad, ice pad, and defibrillator. Here device like defibrillator is used to restore a normal heartbeat by sending an electric pulse or shock to the heart.

They are used to prevent or correct an arrhythmia, a heartbeat that is uneven or that is too slow or too fast. Defibrillators can also restore the heart's beating if the heart suddenly stops.

 With all the above most common home medical equipment, another hot topic regarding health care at home is Tele health, this is one of the important technology which is health care facilitated by telecommunications technology, that has begun to transform the home care landscape and promises to grow substantially in coming years. Currently, simple technologies (e.g., e-mail, the Internet, cell phones) can be used to monitor people’s health at a distance.

High-resolution visual images and audio can be transmitted through telephone lines or broadband connections. In coming years, remote monitoring will increase dramatically and will involve more types of equipment in the home; technologies such as wireless electronics and digital processing will support communication between a diverse set of devices and remote health care providers.

There are various new inventions been going on in the field of home medical devices that have made our life a bit easier and comfortable helping us to monitor and control our own health from home.
