Adapted baggage cart

Emergency equipment cart for ventilator user

Baggage cart with large stable wheels, adapted with an extra shelf. A multi-compartment bag stands on each level. The bags contain items such as a portable suction device with suction catheters, a water bottle to clean the suction device, a bag valve mask, and other products that may be needed such as compressor, gloves etc.

Authors comments
The user is ventilator-dependent. Since she cannot cough she also depends on a suction device. When she goes out she brings a suction device with her, as well as a backup ventilator in case the ventilator she uses should break or the battery runs out.

Since the wheels are large it is easy to pull the trolley along everywhere.

Build instructions
An extra shelf was welded to a purchased stand.
