Backart / Emergency Rescue Vehicle


A new idea to rescue people who was injured on mountain. In ordinary cases, most of injured people will be evacuated by helicopter, but once the weather or terrain wasn't allowed. The only way to save the wounded person will be human-powered transport, which is Backart design for. Backart is made for pro-rescuers to carry stuff or injured person on back, and fixed with belt. Backart also has wheels for non-emergency usage. Simply use while in base or daily duties.
