Water Filter for PATH/Bill Gates Foundation
Trampoline worked closely with Quicksand Research on developing a water purifier for the Indian rural areas. Lack of clean drinking water is one of the key problems faced by rural Indians and leads to thousands of deaths annually. One of the key problems related to this is the lack of water purifiers that are designed for usage in such conditions. The product developed by Trampoline was based on field research and data collected by Quicksand which led to a design that was affordable to manufacture, easy to clean, as well as incorporated features that address usability in rural areas.
The filtration engine also became integral to the design and was developed by USA based experts who joined the project team. The resultant filter has become the reference design template for water purifiers manufactured for rural areas in India and Africa and can be freely licensed by any manufacturer.
