The Ford Rescue X design proposal from Robert Engelmann is a tough vehicle designed for rescue operations in treacherous terrains. The futuristic search and rescue vehicle is designed to reduce time consumption in medical emergencies. The Ford Rescue X Concept is a study of a futuristic search and rescue vehicle designed for rough terrains that features a dedicated medical module and Computer Aided Surgery equipment. It was designed by German product design graduate Robert Engelmann.

Ford Rescue X Concept Rendering Ford Rescue X Concept Rendering The car has an original layout, with an open structure that integrates two seats for the driver and another operator, and a dedicated closed medical module, which is connected to the chassis by means of a mechanical balancing system. The medical module floats above the main structure and protects the passenger like an egg. A display window shows the passenger's health conditions.Ford Rescue X Concept By Robert Engelmann
One of the seats has an integrated first aid pack that can be quickly released, while the rotating wheel arches on the concept allow it to move through snow covered/ icy terrains. The medical module has a system to allow remote Computer Aided Surgery (CAS). The concept has an electric drivetrain utilizing four suspension-mounted motors.

Ford Rescue X Concept - Design Panel The rotating wheelarches can be turned into special breaks for extreme conditions such as on the snow or icy terrains. A backpack with first aid tools is integrated in the seat and can be quickly released. The integrated medical equipment also includes a computer tomograph and a CAS system (Computer Aided Surgery).
The project was created at Ford of Europe design studio by Robert Engelmann for his product design diploma at HBK Saar, Germany.
