The idea of using wooden box as the case came for more than one reason. Richard Clarkson says “The first is the psychological connections we have with the materiality of wood. As a substance it carries with it connotations of nature, warmth and individuality. It is these qualities that I feel perfectly suit the values of Footfalls & Heartbeats.”. The wood of Smart First Aid Kit came from New Zealand Native Rimu which has antibacterial characteristic, similar to bamboo, therefore, it is applicable for both the casing and instrument of medical goods.

And what if I don’t know whether it’s just sprained or the bone is cracked? Will it be able to tell?
I love the idea! People need to learn that a nose bleed or a sprained/possibly broken wrist/ankle is a family doctor or urgent care issue NOT and ER issue!!!
