A huge need for affordable health-care equipment exists in developing countries. Locally produced equipment is cheaper and more easily maintained than imported items, and can be designed to suit the community's needs and resources. This book contains illustrated step-by-step instructions for making items such as folding beds, ward screens, wheelchairs and mobility aids, and gives guidelines for adapting these designs to particular circumstances. Ideas and designs are included for hospital furniture, tricycles, wheelchairs and carts, physiotherapy and orthopaedics, laboratories and maternity and child care. There is also information about basic construction and marketing methods, and a list of resources from which further information may be obtained.
