Project: t-64

Curso: Diseño de Producto
Area: Design

Doctors Without Borders offered two challenges: firstly, it asked the students to design a solution to make getting to health centres in the Congo easier for the general public because of the mobility problems in rural areas; secondly, it asked them to create a lighting system for the toilets in the Numbi hospital. Matteo Guarnaccia designed the t-64 kit, which consists of two multi-purpose slotted aluminium or wooden boards with two straps and four harnesses.

Combining the parts with local materials allows the kit to be used for several purposes: as a stretcher to transport people, designed to be constructed in the Congo with bamboo or wood; a bridge to cross rivers, a first aid kit or a splint for first aid. During each trip, the kit can be used in these different ways to make it easier to cross rural areas to get to the nearest medical centre.

All the items in the project take up little room, which makes it easier to transport by motorbike or on foot.
