Half of all medical equipment in rural LMIC hospitals doesn’t work, another half of all rural LMIC hospitals don’t have the equipment they should to treat their patients. This is brought about by broken down parts of equipment which are too expensive to replace or long procurement cycles
Kijenzi’s 3D printing service ensures health centers in low -income communities are able to produce medical equipment when they need it. This helps reduce procurement timelines and increases efficiency in production while delivering quality healthcare at a lower cost.
The cloud-based system bypasses the traditionally slow and cost-prohibitive medical supply chains. Clinics in Kenya using the Kijenzi system can now produce or “print” the equipment they need, when they need it.
