Vita Inclinata’s technology consists of a novel control system, correcting for unwanted movement caused by the environment or by operators, integrated with a robust, precise hoisting system. A network of sensors on both the bottom of the rope as well as the helicopter provide data regarding sway and movement perturbations, which are read several times per second by a microcontroller to minimize motion. This type of technology provides a solution that addresses a dire need of rescue helicopter personnel on a daily basis. Our technology will be able to ensure that rescuers are safe, effective, and can treat a patient with the most care possible by minimizing the chaotic swinging of the cable during rescue extractions.
