Compact storage, ease of use, and flexibility in transport have made Skedcoâs SkedÂ® stretcher popular with fire departments, rescue squads, the military, and ski patrols. Made from a heavy sheet of plastic, the stretcher becomes rigid when folded around your patient. A variety of handles and straps allows the stretcher to be transported by carrying, lifting (vertically or horizontally) by rope systems or helicopter, or towed with the stretcher sliding on the smooth bottom surface. The system comes complete with the stretcher, CorduraÂ® nylon backpack/towing harness, two straps, horizontal lift slings, vertical lift sling, one large steel carabiner, and four removable web handles. The Sked storage bag is 36 inches (91 cm) long by 9 inches (23 cm) in diameter.
