F1™: saving the lives of newborns
As high-speed collisions can prove deadly, F1™ cockpits undergo 15 types of impact test before being passed ‘race fit’.
This same attention to saving lives has now been applied to the ambulance service. Until now, transporting seriously ill babies to and from hospital was hazardous because of the weight of traditional metal incubators.
The BabyPod II is a new F1™-inspired solution to the problem. The baby is placed in a self-contained structure similar in design to the driver’s cockpit. F1™ materials are light enough to allow the carrier to be placed in a wide variety of vehicles from doctor’s cars to helicopters, which also reduces the call on overstretched ambulance services.
