Ambulance Redesign Project
Our project is focused on improving the ergonomics and quality of life for the paramedics in the BCEHS ambulances. We were tasked with improving the storage solutions of the ambulances and improving the spaces for the storage of the paramedics personal effects in the front cab area. This led to us redesigning the layout of everything that was stored in the front cab and making the best use of the space.
Our design will be essential for the development of the ambulance fleet in the province of British Columbia over the next five years. This study will influence and improve the paramedics efficiency and comfort while they provide their services to the community.

Franz is 20 years old, from Taiwan, came to Canada 5 years ago to study. His role in team FALSe is the CAD manager. Back in the summer of 2020, he was assisting his parents’ company back in Taiwan as a CAD manager, mainly generating Solidwork drawings and coming up with solutions for their product.
