360° Balance Stretcher

A camera stabilizer is a device designed to hold a camera in a manner that prevents or compensates for unwanted camera movement, such as "camera shake". Inspired by its structure, 360° Balance Stretcher has rugged all-terrain handling by using gyroscopes to sense disruptive motion and using 3 individual motors to balance the system. So it has the ability to stabilize the patients when moving vigorously in emergency preventing secondary damage. Modular engineering and compact design makes it easy to produce and assemble. This allows a reasonable hardware cost which not exceed a few hundred dollars.
