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.
