Control S1 / emergency strecher

Control S1
Control S1

Control S1 is an anti-vibration emergency
strecher, whose surface always stays in a perfect horizontal position. Integrated gyroscope sensors register the vertical movements. 3 hydraulic pistons in the middleframe of the strecher react within milli-seconds and balance the unequal level by moving up or down. The horizontal movements get smoothed out by dampers, which are integrated into the base frame.
Control S1 garanties any shock - and vibration -free transpotation of seriously injured people while carrying and rolling the strecher when it is attatched to the base frame and while riding in the ambulance.
