This Drone Defibrillator Can Fix Your Heart In The Middle Of Nowhere.

A non-profit from Germany recently proposed its own flying defibrillator, and it’s working with a technology company to actually bring it to the air.

Definetz’s drone, which was built by a company called Height-Tech, can travel up to six miles at a top speed of 43 miles per hour. It’s designed for remote regions, which ambulances have a tough time accessing.

“Defikopter is one small supporting step towards an optimized responder structure,” says Definetz’s Friedrich Nölle, in an email. “It’s for sports areas like golf clubs, difficult terrain such as coasts or mountains, and rural areas with weak infrastructure.”
