Our life now is full of technology that is incorporated in our daily routines. This made us think of a technique that is available but not yet used in the field we are targeting. So we came up with the idea of BALANCE a self-stabilizing platform. This platform’s main target is to balance out the movement when an ambulance car is moving. By this project we are trying to provide a better health care for patients transported by ambulance cars. It will reduce the movement by 30 – 40% and the roads obstacles will no longer be a reason for risking people’s lives. This project can be implemented not only in ambulance cars but also in ships, handicapped cars and transportation vehicles. We achieved this goal of balancing movement on vehicles by searching and looking for other similar projects that carry the same concept. We did gather a lot of information and opinions through surveys to know how to make this project suitable for use. We started with the idea of creating a self-stabilizing bed but when we thought about making it commercially beneficial it is much more flexible to make the platform in the car and any stretcher can be attached to it. So, instead of implementing this project to hundreds of beds it is easier to implement it to tens of cars.
