First responders are bound to get excited over the MediEase Stretcher. The device is a conceptual stretcher from Wan Xuan Lim designed to make things safer for both the rescuer and the rescued.

For starters, the MediEase Stretcher comes equipped with a medical vest designed to hold vital first aid supplies. The vests also pull double duty as the stretcher can be clipped onto them to allow rescuers to work hands-free. The stretcher itself has been designed to be as comfortable as possible, with soft and padded sides firm yet flexible base. As people move from rural areas into big cities, disasters are only going to claim more lives. Smart designs like the MediEase Stretcher could be the key in limiting the damage done by disasters.
