After a strong earthquake struck, survivors would need immediate temporary shelters to keep them safe. Second Skin has been designed to provide essential needs for the victims, it’s a multifunctional rescue kit that consists of a temporary shelter, a stretcher, and an emergency blanket. It will be very useful to assist untrained volunteers with their efforts to rescue victims.
According to latest natural disaster research, the frequency of high-magnitude earthquakes has increased more than doubled within the last 70 years. During a natural disaster, rescue team and emergency services can be delayed, immediate rescues usually come from bystanders who emerge as volunteers, however, these instant rescuers don’t have medical training or equipment needed.

Second skin project has been designed to ensure it can be used by anyone without prior experience in aiding others. In this way, any volunteers can lighten the workload of rescue team in the first stage after an earthquake to help increase the survival rate. This concept addresses both physical and emotional needs of survivors by providing protection, comfortable blanket, or stretcher when needed. It uses Poron XRD high-impact foam which usually can be found in sporting equipment, thus, making this project features unique ability to shield user from debris during aftershocks. The temporary shelter features Autex acoustic paneling that helps dampening acoustic noise in large open spaces.
