Careables is a community of makers and users of open-source, collaborative hardware innovations that can be easily replicated globally via 3D printing and other forms of fabrication. The aim of our work package in Olinda is to engage stakeholder communities, bring these existing communities together and connect them in the field of open source healthcare solutions.
Read on and join us in our first 15 days of Careables Olinda, following the project kick-off on February 5th 2020!
The importance of Food
Two meetings with Nutritionists working with children in a low-income community in the city or the countryside. They expressed their need for a digital measurement tool. The development of the device started, and it is on welder
Connecting to the Public Health Kiosk
A meeting with Olinda Public Health Kiosk on the beach. They are willing to test and help on Measurement Device Tool development. They also desire a couple of 3D printed Ramps to use on their installations. We could also arrange an opening year meeting of the Afro Brazilian Communities Public Health Program, on March, 17th;
Laser Cut Therapy
Visit Isa do Amparo – She is using Laser Cut excess areas as an instrument for Art therapy. We still have to talk more on that to organise methods. The main idea is to create an organisational system based on shapes and separate them into different boxes. Later you can use it as mosaic, stamps on clothes etc.
Visit one of the Plastic Recycling Centres organised by Olinda Town Hall and the Private Sector in different parts of the city. We need to stop the plastic from reaching our ocean!
Our next steps? We are about to start organising DIY aromatherapy pillows on welder ASAP, a project by Raama.
