Abstract
CRG proposes to revolutionize the patient transport unit by developing a new patient transport platform and by integrating current state-of-the-art telemedic equipment in order to improve the quality of care and outcome for the patient and increase efficiency of patient transport. Although a multitude of aircraft suitable stretchers exist, none fulfill all requirements of the Air Force. CRG's design will capture the best features of current medical transport equipment such as lightweight and durability, while adding features such the ability to stack, add modules, and integrate electronics. CRG has teamed with TeleMedic Systems to more efficiently integrate their health monitoring system into the PTU, reducing redundant monitors and power sources. CRG will design a system that will create hollow spaces for storage, medical equipment/supplies, power sources, etc. The necessary module, based on the injuries of the solider, can be rapidly added and multiple units can be clustered using unified electrical and oxygen sources. CRG's design will also address the flight conditions to be experienced during transport and will utilize the floor mounting systems present in most military and civilian aircraft. The list of design criteria is long but achievable through innovative design and modification of already developed medical equipment.
