SKED Stretcher   SK 200

The original and still the best solution for confined space, high angle or technical rescue, and traditional land based applications, the SkedŽ stretcher is a revolutionary design which provides outstanding patient protection and security. The SkedŽ 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. Available in International Orange or O.D. Green for military, S.W.A.T. and other tactical situations.









Each SkedŽ Basic Rescue System comes complete with:

The SkedŽ Stretcher - the stretcher is fabricated from a special plastic formula which is both flexible and durable. Securing straps with steel buckles are sewn into the stretcher through brass grommets which contribute to the strength and durability.

Cordura backpack/Towing Harness - This durable backpack includes shoulder straps and pockets for storing the SkedŽ accessories when not in use.

Horizontal Lift Slings - a pair of 9,000 lb. tensile strength slings are provide for hoisting the SkedŽ stretcher with a helicopter or other haul system in a horizontal position.

Vertical Lift Sling - For vertical lifting of the SkedŽ, 30 ft. of 3/8" PMI kernmantle rescue rope, with a minimum break strength of 5,265 lbs., is provided with a figure 8 knot in the middle.

Steel Locking 'D' Carabineer - A large locking 'D' steel carabineer is included with the system for attaching the stretcher to a hoisting system. These carabiners are rated at a 9,000 lb. minimum break strength.

Tow Strap - This 6 foot strap with bronze snap hooks on each end attaches the SkedŽ stretcher to the backpack, creating a useful towing harness which can be used in several configurations for towing the SkedŽ by one or more people.

Removable Webbing Handles - In addition to the four handles sewn permanently into the SkedŽ stretcher, four additional removable handles are provided to allow the Sked to be carried by up to 8 rescuers.
