When VALLE, a company from the Province of Córdoba, Argentina, contacted us to carry out this project, we were surprised by the alarming regional and global need for an emergency assistance trailer for fire departments and health care institutions.

Concept

The DMO research team conducted a thorough investigation of the field, studying military health care facilities as well as recreational camping references to draw conclusions about the needs of use, transport and storage elements.

We designed a product suitable to assist patients in emergency situations in situ before being transferred to health care institutions.

Results

The main objective was to have a working prototype so that we could take part in an International Fair for Humanitarian Aid in Washington, USA.

In collaboration with the engineers of Vallé, we developed a prototype chassis and body which is currently being tested in public institutions of the Province of Córdoba, Argentina.
