Yes, a drone can actually save lives and it is here.
SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO
The first minutes after an accident are critical and essential to provide the right care to prevent escalation. Speeding up emergency response can prevent deaths and accelerate recovery dramatically.
This is notably true for heart failure, drowning, traumas and respiratory issues.
Lifesaving technologies such as an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), medication, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) aids can be designed compact enough to be carried by a drone
Interaction Designer Alec Momont and Industrial Design Engineer Samy Andary have created a drone named ‘Ambulance Drone’.
Ambulance Drone can travel in the air at the speed of 100 km/h, hence increase the chance of survival from 8% to 80% as the first few minutes after an accident are critical to provide medical aid. Speedy emergency response can prevent deaths, specially from cardiac arrest, drowning and traumas.
The ‘defibrillator’ drone is made to counter such a situation where immediate medical aid can save lives while an ambulance gets stuck in traffic.
Compact flying toolbox
The Ambulance Drone has a compact design toolbox which contains essential supplies for life support. It can carry compact designed lifesaving technologies like Automated External Defibrillator (AED), medication or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) aids.
The first prototype of the drone is focused on delivering an Automated Defibrillator (AED).
The main reason behind high number of casualties of heart diseases is due to slow turnaround time of emergency services.
