The original design of the EMS kit for the H130 dates back to 2010. Since then it has undergone many design changes, and has more configuration possibilities to choose from. The kit was originally designed for search and rescue but today, a patient requiring intensive care treatment can be easily kept under close surveillance by the medical crew.
The EMS kit is split up into 3 different configurations. All three kits can be installed and removed within a few minutes giving the operator the possibility of a multi mission service.
EMS Kit with floor units
The EMS kit with floor units can be installed within just a few minutes and gives the operator the unique possibility of 2 pilot operations. The kit attaches to the existing helicopter interfaces using specially designed fixtures. The fixtures are mounted onto the original helicopter floor without any structural changes to the helicopter itself.
The stretcher is secured into place on the EMS floor which is located on top of the 2 floor units. The medical carrier is also installed on the existing helicopter interfaces and is reinforced using two struts.
EMS Kit with Medical Floor
The installation time of the EMS kit with medical floor is about 15 minutes. The stretcher and medical carrier is mounted on the medical floor allowing installation without any structural changes to the helicopter. If required an oxygen system can be installed between the 2 rear passenger seats and can also store extra medical equipment and a medical device.
Search and Rescue
The medical floor and stretcher are installed in the helicopter within just a few minutes. It can also be easily removed for cleaning and disinfection when necessary.
Air Ambulance Technology has installed many medical interiors for the H130. Ranging from a Search and rescue configuration to a full EMS configuration.
