22-year-old Kashmiri man, Waseem Ahmad Nadaf, develops low-cost ventilator from waste


Last year, Waseem Nadaf received Rs 1 lakh from the Start-Up India Foundation for his innovations


Waseem Ahmad Nadaf, popularly known as “Unique Waseem” for his talent for rare innovations, developed a fan out of junk.

The 22-year-old, based in Srinagar, has developed a small ventilator which he says will come in handy in providing life-saving support to the poor and disadvantaged in times of crisis.

With 32 innovations already under his belt, Nadaf said he plans to develop a device to tackle the coronavirus pandemic since its outbreak.

“Since the coronavirus pandemic broke, I thought I would develop something like this. The solutions can come from anywhere, but the most important is that you have to be efficient and profitable, because the poor living in the slums cannot afford So I collected some available waste at home, I observed them and used them to develop this model, which can be used as a prototype and later turned into a fan. So at the local level, where there are no ventilators, we can put it in place and save lives, ”he said.

Mr Nadaf added: “I have used different types of junk including parts from a computer, some from VCD players and others from an inverter. Plus, as I told my friends and family to give me their old and useless items. So I already have a lot of junk with me at home. I have perfectly assembled a few items and made the prototype. “

At a time when the whole world is under the effects of the deadly coronavirus, Mr. Nadaf’s innovation is not far from being a boon for patients.

He also made a unique three-layered mask to prevent the spread of the virus. Khadi, paper and aluminum were exceptionally incorporated into the preparation of the mask.

Mr Nadaf says he has been working on optimizing waste for years to develop profitable products.

Waseem Ahmad Nadaf has been recognized and encouraged by many across India and the world for his efforts to make life easier for the common man.

Last year he received Rs 1 lakh from the Start-Up India Foundation for his innovations.
