Load Bearing Automation Help Rural Women

For many women in India, carrying heavy loads on their backs or heads causes numerous health problems and chronic pain. Sometimes a simple automation or enhancement to traditional methods can really make life easier and give a sense of human dignity. Harish Mohan and Vishnu Rajendran from #AMMACHILabs along with Aymeric Maurin, an intern from #EPFL Switzerland, designed this Load Carrying Aid prototype. Rural women from Dunda Village, Uttarakashi were thrilled to try out the prototype and gave us positive feedback. This aid and other rural automation the team is working on are making a difference in people’s lives. #womenempowerment #GenderCenter #LILA
