Erste Hilfe Trainings Truck

When ideas become real projects

First-Aid Training Truck Visits Hasso Plattner Institute

Quick help saves lives  but only a few people have the confidence to perform resuscitation using cardiac massage and a defibrillator in the event of cardiac arrest. From November 2nd to 3rd, from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the campus of the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI), interested parties can refresh their knowledge in a specially designed truck and practice the correct behavior in an emergency under expert guidance. The FirstAid Training Truck goes back to the initiative #10000LebenRetten (saving 10,000 lives) and also stops on the HPI campus as part of its tour of Germany. The idea for the truck originally arose during a design thinking workshop that the HPI Academy conducted for Teva employees in Ulm. 

The project idea for the First-Aid Training Truck was developed in collaboration with the HPI Academy. 

We are proud that the project of the FirstAid Training Truck found its beginnings in a workshop of the HPI Academy. Learning the innovative and agile design thinking method opened up new perspectives for the Teva-ratiopharm team and laid the foundation for this innovative lighthouse project that can save lives, said Dr. Timm Krohn, Managing Director of HPI Academy. Just two years after the workshop led by HPI Academy Design Thinking Coach Marc Stussak, the First-Aid Training Truck was put on the road  literally. More information about the origin of the project can be found here. 

Virtual means, real effect  digital avatar sets the pace.

Under the guidance of a digital avatar, participants in the truck immerse themselves in an everyday situation and playfully practice resuscitation after cardiac arrest using cardiac massage and a defibrillator. Inside the truck, those present learn in just 10 minutes how to take action themselves in an emergency through the use of video, light, and sound, and are thus encouraged to help and save lives themselves in an emergency. The aim of the joint initiative #10000LebenRetten by Teva with the ratiopharm brand and Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe is to increase the first-aid rate in Germany in the long term.
