Imagine What Could Happen If We Combined Digital Fabrication Technology With Real Rural Needs.
A laptop, 3D printer and 3D scanner is all Rural Lab need to setup a fully self-sustainable, digital manufacturing lab which can create prostheses to support the most vulnerable in communities across the world. Imagine a lab with the ability to improve the lives of thousands of people.
Rural Lab is a non-profit organisation born in 2018 in Barcelona by Jonathan Frishberg and Laura Jofré. Since its inception, both have worked tirelessly to guide digital manufacturing technology towards a more social, democratic, and supportive role. The aim of this non-profit initiative is to work in rural areas and developing countries with few resources, where something as vital as prostheses are not easily attained.
