‘Health ATMs’ new initiative for Modern India


Health is the most unappreciated ally of your ambitions. As per the government initiative, to raise health awareness, ‘Health ATM’ or ‘Health Kiosks’ has been opened in different regions of the country, most lately at Ajmer Railway Station. At the cost of just ₹35, residents can avail the benefit, of checking their health status, which will be provided based on the effects of varied body parameters like blood pressure, body water content, weight, mineral content, BMI, muscle, and bone strength, and height. A third-party employee would be hired to assist the users and would give suggestions if there are any irregularities in the test.

The set-up will mostly benefit the railway passengers and is expected to put-up awareness, among the rural classes considering their short reach to the medical facilities. The price of the test is minimal. The result comes within 5 minutes which gives a user-friendly experience to consumers.


On Sunday, Ms. Archana Srivastava Principal Chief Commercial Manager (NWR) inaugurated the Pulse Active Health Kiosk at Ajmer station. She shared with local news reporters that similar projects are also in the aisle in Bhilwara, Udaipur, Marwad, and Abu road junction. The project is executed by a Medical Technology Manufacturer in Hyderabad known as Quantificare’s Pulse Active Stations Network.


“The day I started measuring myself on the impact of various exercises, I realized the importance of quantification,” says Joginder Tanikella CEO of Quanticare. 

The company has achieved remarkable establishment since 2017, around 150 kiosks have been set up across 106 cities with more than 450,000 users. The company has also announced that about 10,000 new projects are predicted to launch in the upcoming 3 years while a soft drink dispenser is something old school now a health kiosk in shopping malls and stations might be a game-changer in how medical assistance facilities are discerned in India. 


How reliable is it?

As per reviews of users, the machine is quite efficient in its work and would cater to the low economic sector of society, the USP of the start-up can be given to its cost-effective business model while a visit to pathology doctor for concerned parameters could cost up to ₹1000, the usual charge of testing by company`s private owned stations ranges ₹50-₹150, North West railway stations have set the price at just ₹35. Some users have complained about machine operators being incompetent in peak hours and have misplaced the test reports but that`s a manual error, as far as the precision of the machine is concerned the results are mostly accurate and are a good tool to frame a general overview on your health status. As someone who personally has taken the test, I would say that it's one of the most rational and economical steps of Indian Railways to adopt this concept.
