For a customer in air rescue SPAES GmbH & Co. KG carried out an STC for the integration of a medical equipment rack in the helicopter Airbus EC155.
In cooperation with the customer’s medical department, the determination of the required properties for the rescue operations was carried out. Through several model demonstrations at the customer, the design was gradually optimized and adapted to the operational requirements. Thereafter, the production of the required parts was performed and the materials and components were procured. After manufacturing, the components were surface-treated for easier cleaning and installed in the customer’s own Part 145 maintenance organisation.
“With the new medical rack, the medical devices in the helicopter can be optimally arranged to provide patients with the best possible service,” says JoachimSchanz, Managing Director of SPAES.
The medical rack can be used in all positions in the passenger compartment, allowing a variable use in rescue operation. The approval of the medical rack was realized by an EASA STC in the Part 21J Design Organisation of SPAES. Since its use in the Airbus EC155 helicopter, the medical rack has proven itself in many rescue operations.
