Odulair, LLC is a woman owned Wyoming company founded by a medical professional in 2008 to assist governments, NGOs, and private medical providers with advanced technology mobile clinics for the delivery of healthcare in over 40 medical specialties. Odulair Mobile and Modular Clinics can be built on most platforms including truck chassis, trailers, shipping containers, tents, and modular buildings.
With a history of break-through innovations, in 2012, Odulair launched the Mobile Clinics for Africa Program. In 2013, Odulair launched the world’s first Mobile Dialysis Unit. In 2014, Odulair launched the world’s first 100% solar-powered mobile clinic. Also, in 2014, our West African clients approached Odulair to develop the world’s first isolation unit to meet the unprecedented needs of Ebola isolation. Odulair rose to the challenge and developed a patent pending isolation unit to meet the needs of all infectious diseases with modes of transmission including bodily fluids, droplet transmission, particle transmission, and airborne transmission. The Odulair Ebola Isolation Unit and the Odulair Infectious Disease Isolation Unit were launched in early July 2014.
Odulair mobile and modular healthcare facilities are built to serve patient populations as independent operating vehicles or vehicles incorporated within an existing facility. Our units have been used for humanitarian healthcare delivery, community outreach, rural healthcare, hospital and surgery center renovation, capacity correction, emergency response, healthcare services within correctional facilities, and more.
Odulair founder and Fielding Graduate University Institute for Social Innovation Fellow Dr. Anita Chambers initiated the Mobile Clinics for Africa Program in 2012 in an effort to provide high quality, country specific custom mobile clinics to emerging nations at an affordable cost. To date, Odulair has designed mobile clinics to deliver healthcare for more than 40 medical specialties housed in platforms ranging from 30-foot (9 meter) highly mobile 4x4 truck-based clinics to 53-foot (16 meter) double expandable trailers. The Mobile Clinics for Africa Program creates collaboration between local African businesses and Odulair as the local businesses provide components for incorporation into the mobile clinics, which are then utilized to deliver healthcare within the country. This unique model of collaboration for the development of medical vehicles was developed by Dr. Chambers in an effort to stimulate both the economy of the recipient African country as well as small businesses in the United States.
