Has proper equipment Ambulance is equipped with technology and equipment’s that may be needed during an emergency, which otherwise is not possible if the patient is being taken to the hospital by oneself. Has Trained personnel An ambulance has trained staff and personnel who knows the proper way a patient needs to be lifted and carried in a vehicle, which otherwise could result in further injury of the patients. However, the ambulance is equipped to accommodate only 1 or at the most 2 patients. During times of emergencies like a stampede where the number of people injured are in need of quick and immediate medical attention, are more in number, It becomes a problem for the helpers to decide whom to take first, or perhaps ever more problematic as when the ambulance arrives, all the people just try to get themselves or their loved ones in the ambulance, in order to give them the treatment as quickly as possible. In a situation of a chaos, It can become a further chaos if in the crowd full of injured people in need of help, an ambulance cannot accommodate more than 2 patients, which is why more and more number of ambulance are needed to be called upon, the problem not being limited to calling more number of ambulances but the cumulative effect that it has; which being the more number of ambulance one calls, the more traffic and space problem is Design Thinking Project 15 | P a g e

created as in situations like a stampede which more or less results because of overcrowding, there is already a lack of space, so it becomes a hassle for ambulances to navigate and reach at the place of need, and the ambulances already having the patients to get going towards the hospitals. The hospitals are usually scattered and situated in different places, It is never the case that there are a host of hospitals situated in all the places, A hospital has a limited number of ambulances, So during the crisis the ambulances will obviously have to be called upon from the nearest hospital or from the nearest ambulance providing services, But with number of ambulances being limited, ambulances will have to be called upon from other locations, which could be far, could get stuck in traffic and there could be a further delay in providing an immediate and timely treatment to the patients. The problem of having the space of only 2 patients is also one of the most important reasons, or if it be said the “culprit” for not being able to provide timely help to the people who could have been probably saved had they been given treatment at the required time. Multi-stretchered Ambulance An ambulance is equipped to accommodate at the most 2 patients which like explained above can create a lots of issues, in order to tackle these issues and reduce the troubles of common man during the time of emergencies, we have proposed a prototype, and come up with a solution of multi-stretchered ambulance.
