Luna EMG

EGZOtech

Luna EMG

The creation of Luna EMG, the first ever robot adapted to work with people suffering from neuromuscular diseases was possible owing to a very close cooperation between the creators: the EGZOTech company and Husarska Design Studio. Our team was responsible for the robot’s ergonomics and appearance.

The robot is intended for a specific target group: patients and rehabilitators. That is why the design team began the works with interviewing these two groups. The planning of the robot’s functionality was based on learning their needs and expectations.
In order to ensure the desired ergonomics, the designers have paid many visits to physiotherapists at their workplace. Hence, using Luna EMG for everyday duties is not at all problematic.

At the same time, the EGZOTech team of engineers was perfecting the applications enabling a patient to play computer games when going through rehabilitation. It is an innovation on a global scale.

The prototype, developed by Husarska Design Studio, had been intensively tested by the target groups. It was only when rehabilitation with the use of Luna EMG started bringing the desired results that it was decided to begin the production of the robot’s final version.

Luna’s housing is made of polyester resistant to various chemical agents and is ideal for hospitals. It is equipped with handles that serve for transportation and a slim, weighted down base. In this way, we were able to replace the initial 1,5 metre long arm with the 60×50 cm base which can easily fit into a transportation case.
It is vital for the Luna’s sales model which is based on long-term rental contracts with hospitals and rehabilitation centres.
Luna has been awarded with the prize of Fundacja Górnośląskiego Funduszu Śląska Rzecz, and became the winner of the second edition of the “Think Big” UPC Business programme for entrepreneurs, as well as many other awards, such as: Brussels Innovation Gold Medal for young inventors.

Eurocopter EC135 coloring design for Polish HEMS

 

In 2008, Poland selected the EC135 helicopter, produced by Eurocopter, as the flagship helicopter of the Polish Medical Air Rescue. 23 helicopters were bought, and they are stationed in all the Voivodeships of Poland. After the purchase, a contest for the colour scheme of the medical helicopter was announced which had to comply with the regulation and the guidelines of the Ministry of Health for emergency vehicles.

 

Specifically described were the elements of the colour scheme that were to be featured on the helicopter, for instance, there had to be a red stripe above a blue one, and the helicopter’s main background had to be yellow.

 

The concept of the project was to create a marking that would be well-visible from far and characteristic for a modern, dynamic helicopter. All the windows had been joined together to create one dark colour spot, making the helicopter look modern.

 

Also, the outlet for exhaust fumes above the cockpit under the top rotor and the edge of the tail have been painted grey, so that there will be no visible exhaust fumes in the part of the helicopter most prone to staining.

 

The dynamically partitioned, eye-catching red stripe extends through the whole tail up to the cockpit.

 

The graphic partitions were inspired by insects, and more precisely, by warning colours in the world of insects.

 

A wasp, for instance, has yellow and black stripes. Such a combination of graphic elements informs other creatures that wasps are dangerous. It’s an example of warning signals in nature and it was the idea behind the helicopter’s colour scheme.

 

What makes the LPR helicopter stand out is the rotor painted in stripes visible from below. In this way, this helicopter cannot be mistaken for any other, because when it hovers above the site of the accident, it will produce characteristic circles. Such a solution has become innovative for the aircraft rescue industry on a global scale.

 

Other governments have been inspired by us when updating the colour scheme of their rescue helicopters.
