Bamboo Bed Net / Bed Net

Bamboo Bed Net

There are many mosquito-borne diseases in Africa, and many poor people in Africa cannot protect themselves from mosquito bites when they sleep, which is one of the main causes of disease transmission. There are many countries in the world rich in bamboo, bamboo material is hard and has good toughness, it is also a quality environmental protection material. We designed a mosquito net with a bamboo frame, and people would open it and cover themselves, and the mosquito would be isolated outside. When they wake up, they fold them up and store them away. It is hoped that the design will reduce the number of diseases transmitted by mosquito bites.
