What if you could receive medical help within one minute of a cardiac event? Well for one thing, your chances of survival would increase from 8% to 80%!

Alec Momont is a graduate student at TU Delft in the Netherlands and has created the concept of an Ambulance-drone. By not relying on roads, this flying machine can deliver an integrated defibrillator at speeds up to 100 km/hr and arrive in a fraction of the time that a conventional ambulance would take.

The goal of this young man is to create a network of ambulance drones to improve existing emergency infrastructures. The design of these drones allows them to fold-up and become a toolbox to carry all kinds of supplies (and to return to base for resupply).

This is truly Help from Above.

      There may be a need for some sort of Traffic Control centers in the future as the number of drones increases.

    Remarkable! What an ingenious way to use technology for the good of humanity instead of blowing it up! You share the most amazing things, Allan.

      Thanks, Stephanie. I got this from a friend who has been a Humanitarian Aid-worker for most of his life.

      The potential use of drones for delivery of supplies, route-mapping and real-time observation is staggering.

    Sounds a very practical idea….but you still need to get the medical staff there

      Yes, staff on-site is important. These are to be designed to help them do their jobs.

    Absolutely awesome! Any clue as to when these drones will be available for use in the free market?
