SKED Stretcher System
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 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.
The Sked comes equipped for horizontal or vertical hoisting in caves or industrial confined spaces. When the patient is packaged the stretcher becomes rigid. The SKED Stretcher System requires a backboard for proper patient immobilization. The durable plastic provides protection for the patient while allowing extrication through the most demanding confined spaces. The stretcher rolls for storage in a tough cordura backpack which is included with the system. The system ships at 17 lbs. and comes complete for most applications.

• SKED stretcher
