etuEver wondered how one transported a severed or missing limb? Those are normally carried around in a picnic cooler of sorts with plenty of ice inside before making its way to the emergency room. Well, the Emergency Transporter Unit (ETU) offers something different, where it has been specially designed for safe, sterile transportation of body parts from the accident site to the hospital, and can also be used in other situations such as from hospital to hospital for cadaver transplant limbs. Inside the device lies a thermoelectric cooling system, an aerogel temperature regulating insulation, and a rigid protective casing that makes sure all the relevant body parts will stand a much better chance of reattachment.
