For reheating hypothermia victims.
The jury says
In a critical situation, the right design can mean the difference between life and death. That awareness led to the development of Thermo Aid, an intelligent bag that improves the treatment of hypothermia in emergency situations. The design of Thermo Aid is a good example of health innovation that involves the users – in this case, paramedics – in both the research and the development phase, thus ensuring concrete and efficient optimisation of treatment options.
