Yolo Health ATM installed at Railway stations
For the first time in India, Railway is installing Health ATM kiosks sponsored by ‘Yolo Health’ at Railway stations where passengers can undergo medical checkup of 16 parameters (basic) at a cost of ₹ 50 and 18 parameters (basic+HB+Sugar) for ₹ 100.
Health ATMs can be defined as private, walk-in medical kiosks with integrated medical devices for basic vitals, cardiology, neurology, pulmonary testing, gynecology, basic laboratory testing and emergency facilities and staffed by a medical attendant.
Free first aid service will be given to passengers holding valid tickets at these ATMs. Apart from that, one basic free screening for each employee at the station will be provided during the first three months. “ATMs will be functioning from 7 am to 11 pm daily. These health ATMs will be manned by two paramedical staff. “About 50-60 persons are using this facility daily. The ATMs help commuters. A passenger with high fever or any other kind of health problem, can easily go through the procedure in a short span of time and decide whether to continue with their journey or not.”
The kiosks, promoted by YOLO Health ATM, provide 16 health check-ups for Rs 50-100. There are two types of check-ups — a 9-minute one that costs Rs 100, and a 6-minute one that costs Rs 50. The report is delivered instantly to the email or smartphone of the user.
The check-ups include body mass index, blood pressure, body fat, hemoglobin, metabolic age, muscle mass, weight, height, temperature, muscle mass, basal metabolic rating, visceral fat, oxygen saturation, pulse rate, blood glucose, and bone mass.
Railways estimate a revenue of 5.4 lakhs per annum.
