Such utilitarian mobile ambulances would be useful for reaching out and transporting patients to the nearest hospitals in rural and remote areas. These ambulances were custom-built as an addition to fit on motorcycles from Hero MotoCorp, with a 150cc displacement and above. Accessories for ambulances include sleep arrangements with critical medical supplies such as a first aid kit, an oxygen cylinder, a fire extinguisher, and siren.
