Rethinking the design of paramedical equipment for car accidents.
Statistics show that traffic collisions are among the most common type of accidents; time between injury and hospitalization is crucial.
By analyzing the equipment used in rescue; the rigid board, collar and immobilizer vest were redesigned. The result was that the rigid board was presented as an extensible product, the collar was transformed into a cephalic-cervical immobilizer and the extraction vest changed its morphology for the lumbar area. Thus improving and reducing the time and maneuvers to remove the injured person.
