Rainstick & Water-drop Water Filters
Globally, nearly 700 million people do not have access to clean drinking water. The WaterDrop and Rainstick were developed as emergency water tools for early-stage disaster relief.

- FTS filters can be used in very muddy water without clogging
- This means that the muddiest flood waters to the smallest of puddles can be used for reliable hydration
- FTS membranes are tight enough that they can be used in brackish water
- This means that even ocean surge from cyclones or tsunamis can be used for reliable and safe hydration
- Delivering bottled water is a last resort, undesirable strategy.
- During the Haiti relief effort, the USAF flew 13 C17 flights/day from the US to Haiti with water. Fuel cost was more than $800,000/day.
- Forward osmosis technology offers a better option for difficult response scenarios due to its reliability, acceptance and ease of transport.

The developing world needs help in getting adequate food, water, and medical aid. These are necessary causes. However, there are over 300 million children walking barefoot in the world, and healthy feet are needed to access water, food, and education. We have found a way to help save a child's life with well-fitting shoes that make healthier feet possible.
