In recent years, central and south africa have witnessed
many waves of cholera outbreaks, causing large areas of
infection and even death.intravenous infusion as one of the
most common treatments for cholera,requires certain
equipments like infusion holders, which may not be available
at many hard-hit areas.
The frail patients there have no choice but to hold the
infusion bags by themselves.
The assembly process is quite convenient and intelligible
due to the well-designed dash lines on surrounding surfaces
of the box.Users just need to unfold the cardboard box and
cut along the dash lines to get two different
cardboards.Assemble the two cardboards into one
installation by inserting one to anther according to the slots.
The cardboard boxes which normally function as medical
supply carriers perform considerable potentials as their
qualities of stiffness, flexibility and recyclability are revealed
in the assembly process.Unlike the traditional ponderous
infusion holder, our design offers better mobility and
convenience which can be crucial in the infected areas.
