Product: Stretcher stand
DIP: Funded by DIP, Design-driven Innovation Program
Leaving patients on a stretcher on the ground for extended periods of time increases the risk of hypothermia. Thus, a custom designed stand was needed, also allowing doctors to better perform first aid on the patient prior to them being released, or brought to the hospital by ambulance or helicopter.
The stand is built to be flexible and adaptable in use. It is designed to be easy to carry and setup in the disaster area with various use modes: high, low, tilted, ladder and of course also collapses to fit in the same bag as the stretchers. Furthermore four smart hooks are integrated in the stand to quickly secure the stretcher.
In collaboration with K8, LESS stretcher stand project got funded by DIP, Design-driven Innovation Program.
