Faveo N100

What if emergency equipment would be more adjusted to the needs of fire fighters, which are an important emergency force at major incidents? At a mass casualty the ability to provide medical care for a lot of injured people in short time is of high value for their health and their survive. Paramedics and also fire fighters evacuate and treat the injured people on site. Fire fighters are often the first ones at a crash site and are able to provide first aid. N100 is a neck brace which monitors the vital signs of the injured during the evacuation process and helps the fire fighter to evaluate the conditions of the patient.
