New in Jerusalem: Mobile ICU on Motorcycle


Unique motorcycles which are fully equipped with rescue and ICU capabilities make it possible for MDA paramedics to get to their destinations much faster, and have more than raised the bar in the quality of Jerusalem's emergency care capabilties. Most of the rescue vehicles operated by Magen David Adom in Jerusalem and her environs added the "Motorcycle ICU" to their ranks.

These motorcycles are equipped with the most advanced technologies and up-to-date medical equipment available for these mobile intensive care units. The ability of the motorcycle to maneuver quickly permits the paramedics to arrive on the scene much more quickly, so enabling them to tend to and stabilize patients with much less delay, and then evacuate them to the nearest hospital for further treatment.
