Medic Restraints Within the Patient Compartment

Medic Restraints Within the Patient Compartment is an ambulence seatbelt system that prevents harm to both patient and medic in the event of a crash.

The system is mounted on an overhead rail in the patient compartment and attached to a built-in harness in the medic’s uniform. The overhead rail also circles the patient’s stretcher, allowing free movement within the compartment and unrestricted access to the patient. The seatbelt extends and retracts like a conventional seatbelt, securing the medic against harmful movement that may result during a collision or a sudden stop. Inspired by the differing priorities of medics in the field and the seatbelt manufacturers tasked with keeping them safe, this system aims to bridge the gap, ensuring the safety of all involved.
