Endur

iF concept design award 2012

The Endur stretcher is specially designed for use in remote mountain regions. Inspired by natives in the Himalayas, it can be used to carry patients to the nearest road to meet the ambulance. The most frequent emergencies involve pregnant women, which is why the Endur also allows the patient to sit upright. For greater comfort for the carriers, carrying straps can be used over level ground. On steep slopes, the front carrier can shoulder the stretcher. The stretcher narrows towards the front to enable the stretcher to be carried by 3 people on very narrow and difficult routes.
