When you have 18th century infrastructure, what's better to use than 19th century transportation technology?

The Bicycle Ambulance Project by the Bicycle Empowerment Network in Namibia produces bicycle-pulled ambulances for use by HIV/AIDS Home Based Care (HBC) workers, HIV/AIDS self help projects, communities, clinics, and hospitals in rural Namibia.

The bicycle ambulance has wide tyres, a removable and adjustable stretcher, a handle for pulling by bicycle or hand, and a sun shade.

For details and photos, visit Community Bike Cart Design. Via Rad Spannerei.
