It is necessary for the patient who met with a traffic accident to perform echography immediately. We have developed the tele-echography device which the doctor who is in the hospital during transportation can inspect by remote control. In this paper, we report new attachment mechanisms of the device. Conventional system has an attachment mechanism with a corset. This mechanism has to pass a corset through between patient's body and ground. It is hard to attach this device to patient used by this method. Furthermore patient suffers damage by moving their body. We developed, therefore, new mechanisms which we can put it on the front of the body and evaluated their installability and robustness in a vehicle.
