"Emergency rescue tunnel" is a modular device meant to rescue an individual that has been trapped underneath the rubble of a collapsed building. The system draws its functional influences from that of a balloon catheter (Stent) which is used in medicine to expand arteries. The device is designed as a capsule that is placed at the edge of a fallen building, then opened by inflating an airbag - expanding the tunnel, and then locked at a maximum size to enable a person to crawl through. Once the first segment is opened, there is the possibility to send in additional ones to create a safe passage for rescuing people during a disaster.
