Manufactured mostly in composite materials in order to reduce weight, it’s composed of a transversally installed stretcher, a double lane medical rack, storage drawers and cabinets, NVG compatibility and gaseous or LOX oxygen bottle in cargo compartment.
Constructed of lightweight composite materials, the receiver is attached to the helicopter floor via Brownline compatible slide coupling set and quick release lock positioning plungers that allows longitudinal tracking for an easy re-positioning to configure one or two litters/deck arrangement.
The Receiver will have a common mechanical and interlock interface to accept both the Litter and Incubator deck thus making it possible to transport one/two litters or one/two incubators or any combination thereof.
The Receiver has symmetrical access for Litter/Incubator thus loading and unloading can be done either side of the helicopter and either “feet” or “head” first.
The patient Litter is constructed of light weight carbon fiber, has an integrated five point restraint system and will be certified to carry up to 400-pound patient.
The Litter is equipped with a gas shock assisted back/head board to allow for raising the patient’s head up to 45 degrees during transport. A “over the knees” bridge made of light weight composites will allow medical equipment transport during litter loading/unloading and ground transport. The bridge platform is designed to rapidly and easily clip to the sides of the Litter and is repositionable between the knee position and the waist position of the patient.
Primary and secondary Litters will be the identical to provide interchangeable operations and “back up” options.
AMS is developing a foldable portable adaptor for striker stretcher to fit and lock its litter/incubator. This will allow transport from the hospital via either road ambulance or helicopter using the same stretcher. We will also certify a floor adapter to install the Striker stretcher on the AW169 directly (iso our receiver).
A Dual Lane Medical Rack allows safe/secure medical devices transport and medical bags storage, customizable in features and extremely capable for number of equipment and weight allowance.
AMS can also designs and deliver medical equipment supports for a fully customized rack adapt to each mission per customer specific requirements.
OXYGEN AND MEDICAL AIR SYSTEMS
Different options are available:
- 10 Lt Liquid Oxygen bottle can be installed in the cargo compartment granting a total gaseous volume of 8600 Lt.
- Gaseous 3350Lt oxygen bottle can be positioned in the cargo area at customer’s choice.
- Gaseous 2200 Lt oxygen can be positioned in the floats bottle bay and can be charged via a side quick access panel.
Oxygen outlets will be positioned both in the front cabin (medical rack) and in the aft cabin (roof). this configuration allows full access and patient support from all seats installed either in single or dual stretcher/incubator interior configuration.
Portable Oxygen bottles can be installed in the medical rack.
Medical Air can be supplied via bottle or pump as per customer requirements.
Ultra-Lightweight Foldable Seats will be installed from Autoflug.
CARGO ORGANIZATION/STORAGE CABINET
Two over the fuel cell cabinets with storage shelves will be supplied with secure netting over the openings. Shelves will be separately supplied and can be installed at convenience creating 1, 2 or 3 shelf cavities either horizontal or vertical. The interior dimensions are maximized following the shape of the liner for a capacity of 55 Lt and allowed weight is 64 Lbs.
Laptop storage – In front of the LH fuel tank, there will be a box for laptop storage.
Second LCSU storage – In front of the RH fuel tank there will be a retainer for a second LCSU 4 or other equipment. This location will allow easy access to suction also to the crew sitting in the aft area.
Soft Pouches – Soft pouch storages will be installed in number and location as desired by customer.
Up to 10 devices can be linked together simultaneously and data can be visualized on a computer on board through an APP. The Electronic Medical Record ICCA visualizes to caregivers the vital signs evolution with time (every 5 min to 1 hour), treatment evolution with time, and allows paramedic on board to save notes onboard and share these notes with the ground hospital team. All these data are real time visible to doctors, nurses and respiratory therapists at the hospital.
