Vita Inclinata’s business started after a real-life tragedy. MGM COMPRO supplied for this project motor controllers. Learn more about their rescue system.
„Why the hell don‘t you fix it?“ were THE words which brought us here.
The whole story starts in 2009 when the founder of the company Vita Inclinata, Caleb Carr, went through hell during a routine training mission in the mountains. One of his friends Don was in cardiac arrest right next to him. When minutes felt like hours and all of them waited for the rescue team, another disaster came along. The emergency team wasn’t able to get to the desperate group of young people with injured Don who needed medical help immediately. They tried their best but the rescue basket from the helicopter was swinging back and forth and was unable to get down because of the wild wind. Don, unfortunately, hasn’t been able to be transferred to the hospital, and sadly they have to call it the time of the death. This situation changed life not only for the founder of the company but many others as may you don’t know, the real systemic problem is linked to this unfortunate event. Studies prove that nearly 24 people die every day just based on the same circumstances.
This situation and later on the advice of his professor, who pushed him into thinking about the solution to his traumatic experience, resulted in creating an invention that will change everything. It was followed by in the first idea of the now well-known rescue system.
After many years of research, ideas, development, and rejections, Vita Inclinata came up with a literally life-changing project which stops swinging the rescue basket or any other load within the seconds. Feel free to see the demonstration in the video down below.
Their rescue system is a lightweight and at the same time quick-attach unit. It’s compatible with various rescue kits. Its primary role is to enable helicopter greater speed, safety, and control over the hoisting operations. It’s able to autonomously stabilize rescue hoist spin and swing so that the emergency will be able to help people without many environmental difficulties.
Because of its own technical quality, this device, as we call it “rescue system” can be used in other ways, such as the stabilization of large loads. As you can see in the video.
MGM COMPRO is the main supplier of motor controllers in this unique project. Our motor controllers are a great match for such applications. They offer complex brushless DC motor management and many possibilities of settings, connectivity as well as diagnostics, which were crucial mainly during the development stage of the project. With the company Vita Inclinata, we have been long-term partners and like to hope our collaboration will continue further.
Feel free to read more about our partners’ projects and their story.
MGM COMPRO has collaborated with TUM University on many successful projects over past 4 years, how many more await us in the future?
