Journalist Dmitry Klein publishes an impressive video on his blog about how British rescuers are testing the latest technology: in the mountainous region of the Lake District, a prototype jetpack designed for rescue service doctors is being tested.
The idea is simple: if somewhere in the mountains there was an accident, someone was injured and urgently needed help - until the rescue helicopter is assembled or if it is impossible for it to reach, until the rescue group is assembled and reaches - a medic with a jetpack flies directly, ignoring obstacles on the ground , and therefore there is no price for such a vehicle in the mountains!
According to Andy Mawson, the head of the rescuers, with such equipment, he will be able to defibrillate the victim at a height of 1 km in a maximum of 8 minutes after receiving a signal about cardiac arrest.
Of course, the technology will develop - as will the cost of equipment will decrease. So far, the kit from Gravity Industries costs more than 4 hundred thousand dollars.
