The ambulance-drone is capable of saving lives with an integrated defibrillator. Can fly to a patient suffering from a heart attack much quicker that an ambulance. Watch the video…
The goal of the ambulance-drone, unmanned aerial vehicle, designed by Alec Momont, is to improve existing emergency infrastructure with a network of drones.
Each year nearly a million people in Europe suffer from a cardiac arrest. A mere 8% survives due to slow response times of emergency services.
This new type of drones can go over 100 km/h and reaches its destination within 1 minute, which increases chance of survival from 8% to 80%! This drone folds up and becomes a toolbox for all kind of emergency supplies. Future implementations will also serve other use cases such as drowning, diabetes, respiratory issues and traumas.
Designer Alec Momont, said: “With the Ambulance Drone, it is possible to deliver defibrillation to any patient in a 12-square-kilometre (4.6-square-mile) area within one minute. At that speed, survival rates can be as high as 80 per cent.”
