A propos du projet Éditer

Labour community across India is lifting, carrying and moving objects over head since a long time.
VAJRA is a simple, low-cost device for them. It distributes load from head to shoulders and solves the complex traumatic problems caused by work drudgery.
Also, it is a multipurpose device that can be used for a wide range of jobs.

Quel est le potentiel de déploiement de cette initiative ? Éditer

The current prototype is made of sheet metal but subsequent versions should be made of plastic.

Currently I am working in an incubation center to develop VAJRA. The project needs a small seed funding to finalize 1st phase of project and a loan support for the next phase. I am also looking for mentoring by experts in plastics and design registration.

Quel a été le facteur déclenchant de ce projet ? Éditer

Inspiration: An incident happened 4 years back that led me to think about the people at the ‘bottom of the pyramid’. A woman carrying bricks on her head near my home lost her balance. The bricks damaged her fingers and left her with no work.
That prompted me to think of a solution for the drudgery faced by labourers. I came up with Vajra after 4 years of dedicated effort.
