RSO one / autonomous sterilizationdevice

RSO one
RSO one

The Problem: The rural infrastructure of developing countries is insufficient for proper medical care. Medical devices are rarely adapted to the local conditions. For example: surgical instruments are boiled at temperatures that are too low and are not stored in proper sterilized environments. "RSO one" constitutes a simple way of filtering water of any quality and sterilizing surgical instruments. The Sterilisation device is developed in a clever way of combining simple technology a handling, a low-budget-production and the way of transport by Ngos. The device is also designed to faciliate a correct use.
