The title of this competition is “UP-CYCLE”. I chose the 2016 award-winning work “Bamboo Recumbent”, and the most attractive one is the background story of this work. I extracted a few keywords, such as: Central Philippines, low-lying areas, sea ponds, poor sanitary conditions, efficient transportation methods and so on. I use these keywords as my key point, hoping to make a medical transportation vehicle, “PASSAGE” appeared.

There are many islands in the central Philippines,and medical transport is not efficient. “PASSAGE” can make medical examinations for patients while driving, reduce the tedious process of entering medical centers, and gain time for patients.

When “PASSAGE” arrives at “MEDICAL CENTER”, there will be a dedicated medical channel to quickly connect the “PASSAGE”Transportation area. Patients will arrive at the medical department as quickly as possible for further treatment.
