The Traverse Rescue Stretcher was designed and constructed for both horizontal and vertical casualty evacuations. The lightweight and compact roll-up design makes this stretcher ideal for high angle and confined space rescue, as well as backcountry wilderness and helicopter operations. The wrap-around concept gives the patient a feeling of security and protects arms and sides from further injury during evacuation procedures.
The Traverse Rescue Stretcher is constructed using an inner layer made from a tough, high density polyethylene sheet, giving the stretcher its rigidity when curved around the patient. The outer fabric shell is made using two different materials. The base fabric is a 1350 Denier Cordura nylon with a heavy PU coating, which has been specially woven to be as tough as possible to resist abrasion and cuts. The top layer is 1000 Denier Cordura making a tough but comfortable layer for the patient to lay on. The carry handles and vertical lift attachment points are constructed from 2” web and designed as structural attachment points for a lifting bridle. The plastic tubing on the carry handle makes for a comfortable carry for rescuers. The built-in color-coded full body adjustable harness restrains the patient securely. The stretcher comes with a Cordura storage bag with backpack shoulder straps.
