Amphibious Stretcher / Stretcher

Amphibious Stretcher
Amphibious Stretcher

Sea level rise and flooding affect people’s daily traveling, and are life-threatening. Especially for persons with disabilities and the elderly with reduced mobility. When disaster strikes, they must use the power of others to leave the disaster area. The two forms of Amphibious Stretcher can be changed to adapt to the two conditions of land and water. The air cushion will cause the stretcher to float when it is on the water. On the land, turn the stretcher 180 °and continue to use it as a cart or wheelchair. Either way, one person can push a person with reduced mobility. This saves labor and tool costs.
