Case Study Questions 04
Direction Read the case and answer the following questions.
Sunita used to live in Kochi with her parents. During her summer holidays, she went to meet her grandparents who lived in a small town. They were very old and had to take a lot of medicines during the day. They often used to be tired to go to the market to buy their medicines and sometimes forgot to take it, as they did not have help. This affected their health. She then saw that other old people living around face the same problem. Sunita felt very bad about the situation and wanted to help them.
Sunita thought of many ways to solve this problem, so that her grandparents and other old people living in the colony remain healthy and get their medicines on time. She then thought of an idea! – to make a special remote, with just one button. This remote would send the signal to the nearest medical shop, who would deliver the medicine within a day. The remote also had an in-built, easy-to-use alarm system which old people could use to set reminders for taking the medicines.
Every time the alarm went on, they would take the medicines and turn the alarm off by merely touching the button on the remote. She made this and tried it out at her grandparents’ house, and it worked! They now did not have to travel long distances to buy the medicine or need help to remind them to take their medicines on time. This ‘Remote control’ became very popular in her village and soon, in all of Kerala. She now runs a business and sells these remote controls all over India.
