MediCooler: A solar powered vaccine cooler for the developing world


Due to the lack of electricity in some developing and under developed regions of the world, even basic medical facilities fail to reach the local residents. To solve the problems and make sure that people in the under developed world have access to vaccines and medicines, industrial designer Hannah Jenkins has come up with the MediCooler concept.

The system makes use of integrated solar panels, which generate all the energy needed to keep the ingredients cool. The size of the vaccine carrier is quite small, allowing it to be carried on the back of any bicycle, moped or motorbike. The MediCooler has been designed to be placed in hospitals or clinics, where it can harvest solar energy during the day. After dark the cooler relies on the energy stored in a battery, which ensures that the vaccines inside are kept cool for up to 10 hours without a charge.
