A Bambulance? A Bamboo & Bicycle Ambulance.  In many parts of Africa, people die unnecessarily due to lack of access to health services.  They don’t have the 5 min. or less response time we enjoy through 9-11. They may not even have an ambulance. A Vancouver based company has come up with a low cost solution, the Bambulance. A stretcher on wheels, towed by a bicycle. Able to traverse both rough terrain and crowded streets.
