A Missing Limb’s Best Friend

The thought of a limb sitting on ice in a picnic cooler en route to the ER makes me cringe.  Now here’s an idea that would put me a little more at ease if that ever happens. The Emergency Transporter Unit or ETU was designed for safe, sterile transportation of body parts from accident to hospital, or hospital to hospital for cadaver transplant limbs. A thermoelectric cooling system, aerogel temperature regulating insulation, and a rigid protective casing ensure all your favorite body parts the best chance of reattachment. (Knock on wood)

ETU is a 2010 Red Dot Winner
