ETU / Emergency Transporter Unit

ETU
ETU

Accidents at the workplace, on the highway, or in other situations can result in the amputation of body parts. If transported correctly, the parts have the potential for successful reattachment. ETU (Emergency Transporter Unit) has been designed to provide the proper conditions for safe, sterile transportation. The three main elements of its design are : a thermoelectric cooling system and sensor which ensure the even cooling of 4°C around the amputated part; an insulating bag made of Aerogel which consistently maintains temperature; and the main casing of the unit, which firmly protects the amputated part from damage during transport.
