IMAGINE WHAT COULD HAPPEN IF WE COMBINED DIGITAL FABRICATION TECHNOLOGY WITH REAL RURAL NEEDS.
A laptop, 3D printer and 3D scanner is all Rural Lab need to setup a fully self-sustainable, digital manufacturing lab which can create prostheses to support the most vulnerable in communities across the world. Imagine a lab with the ability to improve the lives of thousands of people.
Rural Lab is a non-profit organisation born in 2018 in Barcelona by Jonathan Frishberg and Laura Jofré.
Since its inception, both have worked tirelessly to guide digital manufacturing technology towards a more social, democratic, and supportive role. The aim of this non-profit initiative is to work in rural areas and developing countries with few resources, where something as vital as prostheses are not easily attained.
About 30 million people living in developing countries require mobility devices. Most, can't afford them.
Andhra Pradesh, India, was chosen as the first location for our project.
We are recruiting money to be able to setup the first lab and to serve thousands of people with mobility difficulties who cannot afford the high price of decent prostheses.
Every contribution counts.
