[Joseph Bentley] Must be one of those who see opportunity in the problem.Several of his friends were victims of knife attacks, so he developed REACT, a device that allows the police or other first responders to quickly help the stabbed victimThe project won the Dyson Award, you can watch a video about it below.
The device consists of two parts: medical grade silicone sleeve and hand-held actuator. The sleeve is actually inserted into the puncture wound, and the actuator pressurizes the sleeve according to the location of the wound. The actuator has a user interface that allows the operator to select the affected body area.
We don’t know much about emergency medicine, but obviously, the current method is to apply external pressure, which has little effect on internal bleeding.The sleeve solves this problem [Bentley] It is believed that if the device is marketed, many lives can be saved. Of course, putting medical equipment on the market is a long road full of regulatory risks.We hope the Dyson Award can be helpful [Bentley] Put the product in the hands of someone who can use it for a good purpose.
We are very interested in replacing damaged body parts, but it is also good to save people from losing body parts or lives. Sometimes it pays to just ask for help.
