LIFE STRECTH / STRECTHER RESCUE DRONE

LIFE STRECTH
LIFE STRECTH

Life-Stretch is a system consisting of modular drones, working together with rescue personnel for increasing the efficiency of relief operations. In the event of a disaster, the drones are released like a swarm, capable of covering a huge area quickly, to find survivors. When a survivor is detected, finder calls the closest drones to itself. Then rescue personnel can assess the situation of the survivor and quickly attach drones to each other without the risk of moving the wounded and causing further injuries. This allows one person to gather multiple survivors and guide them to first aid stations on floating stabilized stretchers.
