Outline

Stretcher should be stored in public areas in building where it is highly visible and can be used by anyone, but many facilities store it in warehouse or storage space for design and appearance reasons. We thought that if wall retractable stretchers that could be installed in highly designed architectural spaces were widely used, it would be possible to respond quickly when necessary.

Evaluation

A stretcher should be located where people can have an immediate access. However, in places without enough space in corridors, stretchers are often stored in storage or other closed spaces. Consequently, there are many cases where immediate action cannot be taken. This Rapid Rescue can be stored in a space as narrow as 120 mm in depth, and therefore can be located in most corridors. The stretcher looks heavy at a glance; however, it does not have much weight. There is no trouble in carrying a big person on this item. This is a high-purpose design in many ways, in terms of rescuing and interior design.
