‘DESKIT’: IIT-Kanpur student’s innovation to reduce backacheShruti, a Class 2 student in a Kanpur government school with few desks and chairs, no longer has to sit on the floor, her back bent as she pores over her books. Her lightweight schoolbag, with a detachable table attached to it, has helped ease the burden of school – and backaches at just seven. Shruti is not alone. Like her, thousands of children across the country going to schools that lack basic infrastructure have benefited from DESKIT, an innovative project developed by an Indian Institute of Technology-Kanpur graduate. A brainchild of innovator Eshan Sadasivan, the bag, weighing one kg, is helping students write comfortably and maintain proper body posture. The Rs 400 bag has a detachable plywood study table with foldable legs made of mild steel (MS) tubes, weighing only 680 grams. The table is attached to the front flap of the bag, which is made of high quality waterproof fabric, to avoid contact with the student’s back, Sadasivan explained. Giving details of how DESKIT was born, the 27-year-old said, “While pursuing my postgraduation in product designing from IIT-Kanpur, I taught students of government schools in the nearby areas and saw that they don’t have access to basic study infrastructure, both in school and home.”
