Louise Jaiyeola Oduyoye Develops Neva, An Emergency Power Backup For Surgeons by Nobody: 1:39pm On Oct 19, 2015




Prior to recent developments, electricity has always been one of the major issues we face in Nigeria – an issue which affects all industries and hospitals are not exempted from this. I can’t imagine what will happen if there is a power outage while surgeons are in the middle of an operation…

I could go on and on about how unpalatable the issue is but that’s not what this post is about…. This post bears encouraging news about a female Nigerian student studying at the University of Derby in the United Kingdom who developed a device to help in the event of a power outage in an operating room.

21 year-old Louise Jaiyeola Oduyoye developed a mobile medical battery called Neva which provides backup electricity to surgical theatres. The device is rather similar to the regular UPS (uninterruptible power supply) but is more dynamic in that it can be adapted to advanced situations. Neva contains replaceable lithium ion battery packs with enough power output to power critical machines during surgeries and reduce the risks associated with power outages.

Louise Jaiyeola Oduyoye is a Mechanical Engineering student at Loughborough University where she is pursuing her Master’s degree. Neva was a product of her completion of the requirements for obtaining her first degree in Product Design Engineering at the University of Derby.

In a comment about her invention, Louise said Neva was “developed for countries that have difficulty accessing uninterrupted power supplies so they can perform these surgeries in-country rather than fly people out.”

We can only hope Neva will be produced en masse and will be made available to hospitals in developing countries to help save millions of lives.

Great..

1. We have an option of generator set
2. We already an option of solar
3. We now have an option of "Neva", does she have the patent? ..i trust my brothers from East of Niger shocked
4. I wish this facility was available in Uyo, I am sure the Uncommon Transformation governor wouldn't have been flown abroad grin

Clap for yasef


I guess she's in london and her invention would probably serve dem there
I do not want back up power.. What I want is the light never to go off .

Just this morning: listening to the radio I hear that in this same country .. @ the AEDC.
A contract staff whose qualification is an OND result(in view) is paid 800k per month. His colleague witout a result is paid 600k. Per month

Their boss's funiture allowance 10m,accomodation allowance 27m and montly pay 5.4million naira per month while their colleagues with higher qualifications @ phcn earn 50k,70k and so on..

How would we have light in this country with heartless humans asuch
Correct me if I am wrong ,
We lost dagrin to this same menace she's tryna fix . Whereas a former governor who built a socalled world class hospital gets involved in a minor "hit car for bumber" accident and he is flown to the uk.
D driver and the orderly sitting in front didn't even go for checkup abi drink panadol .


Sometimes. I just wish that the clamour for independence by biafra is respected .. So that Arewa and oduduwa too can emerge.

Make every body answer him papa name

This is outrageous
Absolute Bullshit!!!


The rich also cry. Believe me .. These rich would cry real soon..

An adage says
If you pin someone to the ground not to get up.. You too would remain on that ground

Nice one.. Kudos to her.

Hope the Nigerian government gets to see this and embrace her invention. Enough of risking people lives, using lantern,torch lights for surgery. Enough!

Achievers of Yoruba, Hausa, Ijaw, Nupe, Edo and descents other ethnic groups are all over the world but no one is making any noise about it.

Ascribe this lady's achievement to a group and hear how they are breathing a special type of oxygen which makes them superior and how their fart is better than folks of other ethnic groups.
