0

About the project

On average, 15,500 high-rise fires occur per year. It causes approx 60 people deaths, 930 injuries, and mroe than 200 million in property loss.(NFINFIRS, 2002)
Thousands of people could be held in a high-rise building above the reach of fire department aerial devices, once the fire is above the operational reach of aerial ladder or elevating platforms the probability of rescuing victims is almost zero.

The A.F.A exoskeleton suit aim to increases firefighters’ performance in walking ,running and carrying while high-rise fire frightening. A.F.A can carry loads up to 91kg. The exo-suit is strapped over the firefighters’ clothing.The device transfers its weight, load directly to the ground, so firefighters don’t bear the weight.
