Norsk Luftambulanse demonstrated the feasibility of the concept by fitting a light, compact scanner on a specially constructed helicopter ambulance. The new partnership aims to expand upon this accomplishment by developing a whole scanner system that can be used in helicopters, ambulances, and even as a mobile unit for use in small hospitals.

Semcon will first study the technology, then develop and test a stretcher compatible with the scanner. The company will also provide specialists to consult on control, electronic, and mechanical systems.
