Self-powered clinic to bring expanded medical care to Uganda
ASU researchers have turned a 40-foot-long shipping container into a rapidly deployable mobile medical clinic equipped with solar power and water treatment systems. The clinic will be taken later this summer to Uganda to aid communities in need of additional health and medical care. Fulton Schools Assistant Professor Nathan Johnson led the project team. Engineering doctoral student Cody Van Cleve coordinated work to equip the clinic with a 10-kilowatt power systems and technology capable of cleaning more than 1,000 galleon of water per hour. Reports about the project have been broadcast on almost 100 network-affiliated local TV news programs throughout the United States.
