Nigeria’s premier medical logistics startup, LifeBank, has announced a new level of medical service delivery in Nigeria – Drone Service.
CEO LifeBank, Temmie Giwa-Tuboson gladly gave this announcement in faraway Ghana where LifeBank got the top prize in the Africa Netpreneur Prize Initiative.
This message was reinforced via the LifeBank Official twitter handle;
Medical/healthcare logistics in Nigeria remains at a very low ebb in its developmental process.
According to a TechCabal’s report on the State of Health Tech in Nigeria, Healthcare Logistics is one of the 12 major health tech sub-sectors in the country.
WHAT DOES THE LIFE BANK DRONE DELIVERY MEAN!
It is noteworthy to acknowledge that LifeBank has had her Maiden Drone flight in Ethiopia sometime in October.
According to the announcement, the startup is also the first African-led company to implement Beyond Visual Line Of Sight (BVLOS) flights for healthcare logistics.
Unlike Visual Line Of Sight (VLOS) flights where the pilot has to see their unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones at every time, for BVLOS, drones can go beyond the sight of the pilot without human interference.
Drones are used to deliver medical/healthcare supplies to remote areas and to pick up blood samples for tests in Laboratory.
LIFEBANK APPROVED MODALITY OF MEDICAL SERVICE DELIVERY.
Over the years, LifeBank has successfully integrated transport modalities that ensures its distinction from other medical logistics companies on the African Continent.
