Portable Dental Chair


In the developing world lawn chairs are commonly the only seats available for a dental patient. The ITEC Portable Dental Chair was developed by our engineering team to fix this problem, both for the patients and the dentist. It weighs only 25 lbs and folds and can be easily carried.

I-SEE Lens Ladder


The I-SEE program gives hope to those who don’t have access to basic vision care. The program ITEC developed empowers an indigenous Christ-follower to do a basic eye exam and provide vision enhancement to someone in need. The ingenious lens ladder invented by the engineering team makes it easy for patients to sample the various powers of glasses to find the prescription that fits their needs.

The Maverick


The Maverick was developed to carry people and equipment beyond roads. A true flying car, the Maverick featured a dual-drive system so the steering and acceleration used the same controls on the ground as they did in the air. This project included numerous innovations from our engineering team, and they even won a Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award in 2009.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle / Mission Transportation


Using GPS guided technology, the ITEC UAV does not require a pilot to steer, navigate, or land. The drone can be programmed with a flight plan to deliver a small payload of urgently needed supplies to a specific location, making hard-to-reach areas accessible.

Dental Battery Box


Dental training overseas can be challenging. Faced with some of these challenges, ITEC dental trainers asked the engineering team to help them run electric dental instruments in environments where electricity is not available or reliable. The result was a battery box capable of running an ultrasonic scaler, amalgamator, and more.

Moving Forward

Today

Continuing Innovation


ITEC has a heritage of developing new tools for the mission field. Whether we are fulfilling a need we encounter in the field, or other partners bring us challenges they are facing, we believe that engineering and developing tools is an essential part of advancing the Gospel.
