WAS 500: The ambulance has been tailored to the specific needs of the emergency services. The width of the box body has been minimised to ensure good vehicle handling, even in traffic situations where space is limited. To reduce the vehicle?s height and avoid damage to the vehicle, the visual warning system has been mounted on the front and rear of the vehicle. Special attention has been paid to the ergonomics for the ambulance crew. For example, the vehicle is equipped with WAS Multi-Load Assist, the entry assistance system for wheeled stretchers. There is a medical attendant?s seat with folding table on the left-hand side of the box body. The patient data acquisition system and the medical equipment are operated from here via a monitor.
