Resumen:
Una universidad alemana ofrece un asiento de emergencia para rescate de personas heridas, ancianos o discapacitados durante una evacuación. Este asiento seguro y asequible se transporta por dos personas de forma intuitiva y es una alternativa a las sillas de ruedas, a menudo caras y voluminosas. El prototipo ha sido probado con éxito en un edificio de varias plantas. Sus costes de producción son bajos y necesita poco espacio de almacenamiento. El asiento puede utilizarse por operarios que no sean profesionales. La universidad busca licenciatarios industriales.

Tittle:
Rescue seat for the fast and effective evacuation of people
Summary:
A German university offers a textile emergency seat to rescue injured or disabled persons during evacuations. The seat is carried by two operators, who can use it intuitively. It is safe and cost-effective. A prototype has been successfully tested. Industrial licensees are sought.
Description:
During evacuations of large buildings or passenger ships, it is of crucial importance to have appropriate equipment and procedures for effective and fast transportation of people who have difficulties with walking such as disabled, elderly or injured persons. Traditional solutions like stair chairs or wheelchairs are often too expensive and bulky. Also, rescue systems for people in lying position have high space requirements and can be used only on wide staircases.

To face those space and cost challenges, lightweight structures, such as textile rescue seats, have been developed and are available on the market. Although the carry techniques used in those systems aim at distributing the weight of the person-to-carry on two operators, there is a lack of solutions which enable the rescue operators to carry a person over a long distance without running the risk of injuries in critical body areas such as neck, shoulders and back.

A German university has now developed a textile rescue seat designed for effective distribution of the weight on two carrying-operators, as shown in Figure 1. Experiments show that an adult of average weight can be carried on staircases and along corridors without overloading the two operators, relieving the strain on shoulders, neck and back and preventing health issues.

A prototype of the invention has been produced and successfully tested in a simulated evacuation in a multi-storey building. It is characterised by low material and production costs combined with little space required for storage. Thus the product will be competitive when introduced into the market. Many items can be preventively stored in every public building or on board passenger ships. They can also be used by non-professional operators. The principle of usage is intuitive and enables every healthy person on site to take part in the evacuation operation.

Industrial licensees with good contacts to the rescue product market are sought for licensing agreements. The partner should accompany the development from prototype to market.
