Challenge 2: Rapid Prototyping

While many ambulances have motorized lifts to transport morbidly obese patients, hospital employees are often responsible for moving patients once they’ve been admitted. 5-6 employees are forced to carry patients from one bed to another, leading to work-related injuries for the employees and an uncomfortable and humiliating experience for the patient.

Our solution is a mechanized lift that automates the process of transferring a patient from one bed to another, or from the bed to the operating table. The process is simpler for employees, reduces the risk of injury, and is faster than manual transportation, saving time that can be used to help the patient directly.
