    “Dasis” Award

    dasis award

    “Dasis” is a name given to King “Ravana”, who probably is one of the greatest inventors of our history. The most popular invention of him is the “Dandu Monara”, the wooden plane. As a nation, we have so much to get inspired from our rich heritage. Hence we gave the name “Dasis” for the award. It defines the ten heads of king “Ravana” to symbolize the observational capability of inventors and the knowledge that is all-pervasive. These ten heads are depicted graphically at the center of the trophy. The two wings on either sides represent the imagination of inventors and the wheels show how they give wings to ideas through technology.

Feedback from few Inventors

  • “I have been working with SLIC since 2014 where I had excellent guidance, support and facilitation for my medical inventions. This low cost video laryngoscope was designed initially in 2015. It was recommended for clinical use by an expert ethical committee in 2016. Followed by a series of modifications and improvement  Patent certificate was issued for the novel features of this device in 2017.

    This device is used in anaesthesia in order to facilitate insertion of a special tube called “endotracheal” tube into patient’s trachea in order to provide artificial ventilation. With the facilitation and support from the SLIC we are looking forward to distribute this device among all the government hospitals to help the fight against COVID 19 pandemic. “

    Dr. Anupa Herath
  • ” I wish to extend my sincere gratitude to SLIC for their assistance which has enabled me to produce more units of Microorganism Diverting and Clearing Device (MDCD) which are currently being requested by Healthcare workers who are at the forefront in our fight against Covid19. “

    Dr. Noragal Ranjan Shashika Ariyarathna
  • ” My invention is the MCRP machine which provides mechanical cardio support to arrested patients with no heart function due to Corona complications. My first contact after finishing this machine was SLIC and they assisted me in filing the patent to manufacturing. They also helped me with all the legal documents as well. Finally, within a week they grant me financial assistance in order to manufacture my invention. I thank SLIC and the team.”
