Life Ball / Emergency Rescue

Life Ball
Life Ball

Life Ball is a modular assembly life capsule designed for disasters. During the past decade, structural collapses caused by earthquakes have resulted in more than 100,000 deaths worldwide. While the majority of survivors of these events are found and extricated quickly, some are subjected to prolonged periods of entrapment before they are rescued. It’s based on a stainless steel rod skeleton, which makes it a strong structure that resists under the rubble and saves people who are inside it. It can be assembled anywhere and definitely takes some room. After falling rubble, it starts sending data to rescue teams and they will find them easily.
