Hoverboard Inbase Patient Air Suspension by Gerhard Maier - Hoverboard GmbH.

Home > Winners > #103781


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Hoverboard Inbase

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Patient Air Suspension

INSPIRATION:
Patients worldwide are still being transported in ambulances straight above the rear axle of a delivery vehicle, suffering additional and unnecessary pain from road bumps. Besides, this causes enormous medical expenses for the aggravation of their injuries during the ride in the ambulance. Hoverboard Inbase insulates patients from impacts by an efficient air suspension, that absorbs up to 80 percent of the incoming acceleration by strokes from uneven roads. All automatic and self adjusting to patients weight.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Hoverboard Inbase is a unique airsuspended stretcher support with integrated pneumatic height adjustment and lateral movement device. A new dimension in protecting patients and medical staff in ambulances. Hoverboard - Premium ambulance technology

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Operation: Just slide in the stretcher. The moment it locks, the Hoverboard adjusts automatically to the patients weight and lifts gently to the level for optimal riding comfort. Loading and unloading: When unlocking the stretcher, the Hoverboard lowers automatically for easy loading and unloading. Hence the patient only has to be slided, but never be raised manually. Pneumatic lateral movement device: Pressing one of the pushbuttons (front or backside) unlocks the cross motion device. As long as you press, you can move the Hoverboard sideways in 8 positions, each 32 mm. Releasing the button locks the Hoverboard in the nearest position. Rigid position (e.g. for reanimation): Pressing the blue main switch quickly lowers the Hoverboard to lowest, rigid position. Pressing the red switch quickly lifts the Hoverboard to highest, rigid position.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
Hoverboard GmbH.

PROFILE:
The Austrian company "Hoverboard" creates airsuspensions, which really earn their reputation. Hoverboards make patients in ambulances hovering without additional pain from road bumps and without aggravating their injuries. Depending on road conditions, Hoverboards can absorb up to 80% of the impacts, but at least 50%. The automatic air suspension protects the patient without causing motion sickness by swaying. The new Inbase is a special version of the new designed airsuspended stretcher supports for the advanced hydraulic stretcher iNX by the Ferno company. It also enables medical staff easy loading and unloading of the patient. For easy reanimation in an upright posture the Inbase can be lifted into highest position simply by switching a button. This means a significant relief for the spine. With the integrated pneumatic lateral movement device the patient can be set to the optimal position for access from both sides. That means a new dimension in protecting patients and medical staff in ambulances.
