Ambulances of the future – a safe and ergonomic workplace
Today's ambulance features far more technology than meets the eye. But not everything is aimed at treating patients. Ambulance manufacturers must also ensure that their vehicles make a great workplace for the crews on board and can adapt to the different challenges of emergency medical services. At the Wietmarscher Ambulanz- und Sonderfahrzeugbau Gmbh, we learn more about this industry from Andreas Ploeger and Sebastian Hinrichsen.
Biomechanical measuring systems – motion and posture analysis in orthopedics
Biomechanical measuring systems are used in orthopedics to diagnose and treat misalignments and diseases. The Velamed Company uses its high-tech solutions to measure biomechanical parameters that enable a holistic analysis of human movement and posture. We took a closer look at how this works.
Ventricular fibrillation – Using ultrasound to detect its causes
Ventricular fibrillation is a life-threatening condition that occurs when the heart muscle exhibits a rapid, erratic beat and the heart will no longer pump blood. The cause might be a circulatory system disease or heart attack. Researchers in Göttingen are now developing an ultrasound technique to get to the bottom of ventricular fibrillation and cardiac arrhythmias and facilitate better treatment options.
