Malayali mechanic in Oman designs automatic cradle

Dubai: An Indian in Oman has designed a cradle that will swing automatically and sense movements of the infant by using sound sensors.

The cradle, designed by an automobile mechanic Rajesh Madhavan, can swing automatically according to the preset timings and sense baby's movements, a Times of Oman report said.

"The cradle will only need the same power as required by a fan," Rajesh said, adding that he bought some parts of the automatic cradle from India.

"Many a times, I have seen busy mothers worried over swinging the cradle manually. It made me think about designing an automatic cradle for them. As I am an automobile mechanic, I had some idea about the machine movements," Rajesh said.

"But, then again, I had to read a lot online and discuss with my friends to make one. Finally, after five years of research and discussions, I have made one," he said.

Rajesh hails from Kerala and has been working in Muscat for the last four years.

"It would be quite convenient for mothers. As it has a sound sensor, it will start swinging automatically when the child wakes up in the middle of his sleep," he said.

Rajesh has made the cradle using metal but plans to make it using fibre, which will be cost effective.

"I have plans to make it more fashionable. I am working on designs to make it more comfortable and attractive for kids. There will be more facilities in the new ones," he said.
