Israel: Innovation in First Aid Technology

Dr. Eran Shenkar has developed a remote medical vehicle that can deliver first aid in place of human first responders. Israelity reports: “It’s smaller, cheaper, and more compact than a helicopter – meaning it can go places a helicopter can’t, and, in times of war, there’s nobody to shoot down… The MedUAV can carry sophisticated equipment equipped with Wi-fi sensors, allowing a field medic to hook up a patient and allow a doctor to provide remote treatment, by giving instructions to the medic.”
