New: CMC RESCUE/SKEDCO DRAG-N-LIFT HARNESS™ 24-10-2016
Because there is a need for a quick extrication device when spinal immobilization is not a concern, the CMC Rescue/SKEDCO Drag-N-Lift Harness™ was developed and engineered as a means to rapidly package and extract a patient from a confined space.The device enables the rescuer to provide a fast load-and-go technique that allows the patient to be packaged efficiently and securely for a vertical lift, horizontal carry out or drag extraction. Compact storage, ease of use, and flexibility in transport have made Sked® stretchers popular worldwide. The drag sheet is constructed from heavy-duty E-Z glide plastic that becomes rigid when curved around the patient. A variety of handles and straps allow the stretcher to be transported by carrying, lifting (vertically or horizontally) from a rope system, or pulled with the stretcher sliding on its smooth bottom surface. In the event that spinal immobilization is needed, the device is compatible with the Oregon Spine Splint System (OSS) and cervical collar.
