The Zambulance – a life-saving bicycle trailer
According to a recent study, over 60 percent of people in developing countries live more than eight kilometers (five miles) from a healthcare facility.
As you can imagine, most of these people don’t own cars, or even have access to motorized ambulance services. When they require urgent medical attention, they often have to walk, are loaded into an ox cart or wheelbarrow, or have to sit on the rack of a bicycle. Fortunately, however, an alternative is available to some – the Zambulance. While the bicycle trailer/ambulance might seem like very basic medical transportation, early trials indicate that it’s truly life-saving.
