The design team of Lange & Lange have designed this rescue sled to help injured skiers and riders off the hill. If built, the new rescue sled could help in transporting injured persons off the slopes in a faster and more comfortable manner.
Nowadays, a lot of families do winter sports, eg.: snowboarding, skiing and trekking. However, as we all know, accidents often happen on slopes or tourist routes for variety of reasons: avalanches, bad weather, inexperience or recklessness. In most cases these result in less or more serious fractures of limbs or the spine.
The aim of the project is to fill the gap in the life saving equipment owned by GOPR and other mountain rescue teams around the world. Designing a vehicle which offers protection against difficult weather conditions allows for the immediate medical rescue action right where the incident took place and during the transportation of an injured person. The vehicle is mobile, manoeuvrable and gets easily to places which are difficult to access. It is good value for money in terms of its capabilities. – Lange & Lange
