Vita Inclinata expands markets for helicopter and crane load stabilization technology
Vita Inclinata (Vita), developer and producer of helicopter and crane load stabilization and precision hardware, today announced the company’s notable 2021 market growth.
Highlights for the fiscal year-end December 31, 2021, that contributed to the company’s growth include increasing headcount to 65 employees worldwide, introducing seven new products to the market—including the Vita Rescue System and Vita Lifting Systems for aerospace and industrial, respectively—and entering the international market of the United Arab Emirates.
“Vita’s impressive success is directly attributed to the collective passion of our talented team who have embraced the company’s mission to save lives and effectively introduced our innovative technologies to search and rescue, firefighting, public safety, construction, wind turbines, oil and gas operations, and other organizations,” said Caleb Carr, president, and CEO, Vita. “We look forward to expanding upon our 2021 success as we continue to evolve the manner in which helicopter rescues and crane lifts are conducted.”
Throughout 2021, Vita met its aggressive product delivery schedule, introducing new life-saving technologies to the market, including:
- The Vita Load Pilot, the original system that first allowed for stabilization of cargo under helicopters and evolved into a product that stabilizes loads under construction cranes. The technology was developed to replace taglines, which is an outdated and inferior method of controlling a load. The first system was purchased by HOLT in August 2021.
- The Vita Load Navigator, enables custom load-size configurations under cranes by attaching to a spreader bar system—making navigating loads faster, safer, and more precise. The first system was purchased by Trident Construction for 2022.
- The Vita Rescue System, attaches to litter baskets, bags, and other rescue systems to provide a safe operation from ground to helicopter, during litter insertion and patient extraction. The system speeds up operations by 300%, saving hover time and pilot fatigue as well as enabling more patients to be rescued when seconds count. The U.S. Army purchased 15 systems for 2022.
