Summary

Summary: 
A Greek inventor has developed an innovative system for building's abandonment in case of emergency. This invention refers to a means of escape that operates only with gravity (the body's weight), without an external energy source. The inventor seeks collaboration, namely license agreement or technical cooperation for his patent.

Description

Description: 

Greece is a seismogenic country. That was the reason that inspired this Greek inventor to create a system for the fast escape of buildings without the requirement of any kind of energy. The system can be established in terraces and balconies aiming at being used in case of emergency (fire, earthquake etc). The mechanism operates only with gravity (our bodies' weight). The use is simple and harmless and can help people escape from high buildings in a short time and without the requirement of anyone else for operating the mechanism.
The person that is in danger uses the small seat, fastens the safety belt around his body and automatically starts getting down the building with a pre-selected velocity that is independent the body's weight and can be arranged to slow down as it reaches the ground so that the person can land smoothly.
As soon as the person gets down from the seat, the mechanism goes up to its former position for the next person to embark and this may repeat several times.
The inventor is looking for license agreement or technical cooperation for his patent. In the first case, the inventor is looking for companies willing to have the licence to produce and exploit the patent in the market. In the second case, the inventor is looking for technical companies able to contribute for the production of the mechanism and the co-exploitation of the it.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
Simple, harmless mechanism without the need for any kind of energy. The velocity can be pre-selected. The velocity reduces as the person approaches the ground for a smooth landing. This deceleration doesn't depend on the persons' weight. Easy to be used, harmless for children and old people. The system can easily be adapted to new applications. There is no requirement for special maintenance. There is no need for any person to handle the system.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
The inventor is looking for license agreement or technical cooperation for his patent. In the first case, the inventor is looking for companies willing to have the licence to produce and exploit the patent in the market. In the second case, the inventor is looking for technical companies able to contribute for the production of the mechanism and the co-exploitation of the it. In the later case, the partner is expected also to help the further development of the system, find out new applications, adaption to new needs, alternative uses.
