Why Vita – Our Story

The Vita team in front of a Blackhawk
Vita Inclinata was founded on the belief that lack of technology should never be the difference between life and death for rescue crews, crane operators, and patients.In 2009, Vita founder Caleb Carr was practicing as a search and rescue volunteer in high school. During a routine training mission, his friend and mentor, Don, went into cardiac arrest next to him. A helicopter arrived to transport Don to the hospital, but couldn’t insert its rescue litter due to gusty winds, rotor wash, and the mountainous terrain. After multiple attempts, the helicopter was forced to turn back without them, and Don died as a result. Caleb learned that this was a fairly common problem that caused the loss of lives. He first enrolled in college as an undergrad with dreams of going to medical school as his way to bring his personal mission to life, but a professor at the University of Colorado – Denver, Dr. Randall Tagg, listened to his story and challenged him to solve the problem that had cost his friend’s life.

We’re on a mission to build technology that brings people home every time! Vita Inclinata enhances what’s possible for operational safety, efficiency, and capability by utilizing the company’s patented intelligent lifting hardware and software, industry-leading training, and acquisition of companies that are the leaders in their field of safety and advanced solutions. Based in Broomfield, Colorado, Vita Inclinata Technologies Inc. includes Vita Aerospace, Vita Industrial, and Air Rescue Systems. Vita Inclinata has additional offices in Washington DC, and Ashland, OR.
