The goal of this IQP project was to discover flaws within the current ambulance design and outline solutions to fix them. The IQP team conducted interviews, polling, and participated in data collection. Through these methods it was discovered that the main problems in ambulance design are associated with the lack of dampening of road surface induced vibrations transmitted into the patient compartment. These vibrations decrease the ability of paramedics to perform the tests and treatments needed while simultaneously increasing the stress experienced by patients. The IQP focuses on technological advancements and design alternatives which may be implemented to decrease the road induced vibrations and increase ambulance efficiency. -
