Vite Rescue Stretcher

Winner - Platinum

Competition: Spark:Concept
Designer: Kim, Lin & Zea
Design Type: Product, Health
Company / Organization / School: Vite Design
Team Members: Soyun Kim, Jason Lin, Agustin Zea

A collapsible stretcher designed to rescue the injured patient as fast as possible in the snow. The backpack shell works as a sled, allowing a patient to be carried by one person. Vite design is intended to be easily opened in order to minimize the time spent setting up the sled for injured patient. The products in the market now are designed to be used by two people. When you carry the stretcher with others, you cannot get the speed as much as you want. Vite is not a heavy duty stretcher for professional rescuers, instead it is a product for the people living on the mountains and expedition groups for emergency situations.
