Don't Recreat the Wheel; Partnering with Impact India
Don't recreate the wheel, just figure out how you can use it. That old-time wisdom is how we can to form our new partnership with Impact India's Lifeline Express Medical Train. We are using their wheels to reach and help children with physical disabilities throughout rural India.
Lifeline Express has, over it's 33 years, provided free medical care to over 1 million of India's most marginalized citizens. This hospital on wheels empowers us to bring prosthetics to children in the to most effective way imaginable.
A specialized 3D printer installed on the train enables trained professionals to measure, print and fit the prosthetic hand to each child's specifications. This approach is high-impact, efficient and let's face it..it's cool.
