The goal in this project is to make a concept of an rescue sled that would ease the rescue crews work and at the same time give the people in need of help a more comfortable and safe experience of the ride to safety. The product in use today is not made for this kind of usage therefore there are no space for storage off necessary equipment, it is also a heavy construction and gives a bumpy and often painful ride for the passenger.
The result is based on surveys, studies of the products and workflow. It is made in cooperation with the Swedish Mountain Rescue team and with help from experts in hypothermia and engineering.
