Transformer / Stretcher


Stretcher is an irreplaceable tool in rescue for earthquake and accident etc. But most of the current stretchers are with only one single function. It can only be used by two people together, which means it can’t be modified to be used by one person, especially in condition of lacking rescuers. The Transformer is a new type of stretcher that can reform into a chair, being moved or carried by one person safely and stably. It would help to move the injured efficiently with fewer rescuers.
