V-FAST Emergency Vehicle Video Transmission System

Emergency Vehicle Video Transmission System

Transmission of clear, high-quality video at low bandwidth from emergency vehicles to hospitals

V-Fast can quickly transmit the patient's situation from the emergency vehicles to the hospital even at low bandwidth of mobile phone networks.

With V-Fast, hospital staffs can grasp the situation at a glance rather than rely on verbal communications with ambulance crews . It is highly effective for preparing treatment for the patient, instructing the ambulance crew on emergency treatment, and selecting a hospital for the patient based on the symptoms and circumstances.

Usage scenario

V-Fast uses a mobile phone line to transmit camera images and biomonitoring images from the ambulance to the relevant hospital in real time. Clear images enable the hospital team to prepare treatment or instruct the ambulance crew.

V-FAST can be integrated to various other systems to support disaster and emergency medical treatment, such as systematizing transport record management with digital pens, sharing still images with smartphones.
