The original and still the best solution for confined space, high angle or technical rescue, and traditional land based applications, the Sked Stretcher is a revolutionary design which provides outstanding patient protection and security. The Sked comes equipped for horizontal hoisting by helicopter or vertical hoisting in caves or industrial confined spaces.
When the patient is packaged the stretcher becomes rigid. The durable plastic provides protection for the patient while allowing extrication through the most demanding confined spaces. The stretcher is rolled for storage in a tough cordura backpack which is included with the system. The system ships at 19 lbs and comes complete for most applications.
This stretcher is widely used by the rescue services because of its versatility, it can be used as a sledge in sewers and on hillsides as well as being attached to a winch and lifted vertically. The Sked stretcher comes complete with all of the accessories you are ever likely to need for any emergency evacuation of an injured person.
