Plus Vaccine Carrier / Product

Plus Vaccine Carrier
Plus Vaccine Carrier

The use of ice packs to cool vaccines during last mile transportation in developing countries cause vaccines to be destroyed through freezing. Plus vaccine carrier is a freeze proof carrier that use thermo-shields with PCM (phase change material) to create a thermodynamic buffer which prevents freezing while maintaining long cold life. This allows users to load deep frozen ice packs directly into the carrier, eliminating the previous need for letting them thaw before loading. The main focus of the design is to provide a self explanatory product that require little to none education and have minimal impact on existing infrastructure.
