HAAS Alert will make life easier for rescuers

Techstars has unveiled its latest technology to help firefighters and medical rescuers work. The application called HAAS Alert will notify all drivers of the approach of the rescue vehicle, which will allow early clearance of the road.

In the work of medical rescuers or firefighters, it is important to get to the scene as quickly as possible, as every second of life saves life. Meanwhile crowded cities are drowning in traffic jams, so lifeguard vehicles have to break through, and that slows them down considerably.

Techstars has, however, developed a solution that can help a lot. It created a special mobile application called HAAS Alert, which in real time provides smartphones with notifications about upcoming rescue vehicles. So the driver can head to the side of the roadway early enough to pass an ambulance or guard car.

The principle of operation of the application is very simple. Each rescue vehicle has a HAAS Alert system that automatically sends notification to smartphone drivers equipped with this tool. Additionally, it also warns pedestrians and cyclists.

Americans will produce artificial organs

Every year thousands of people are dying all over the world awaiting transplants of important organs, and yet there are not as many donors to meet the needs of all expectants. Americans want to change that and intend to invest $ 160 million in the production of artificial organs.

The government has just announced a new project to help people waiting for organ transplants. As it is known, the number of donors is too small to have enough organs for everyone, so it is resolved to solve this problem in a slightly different way.

Americans plan to invest $ 160 million in a facility called the Advanced Tissue Biofabrication Manufacturing Innovation Institute, which will develop techniques for repairing and replacing tissues that will allow artificial organs to be created in the future.

To put it more visually, it would not be necessary to transplant the whole organ immediately, as the doctors would be able to repair the damaged fragments, or transplant an artificial version made to order. The problems with the fit and the need to take anti-rejection medicine would be avoided.
