The Skedco Sked is the original and 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.
It 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 17 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.
QUICK-RELEASE COBRA BUCKLES
This Sked stretcher comes equipped with quick-release Cobra buckles. These lightweight aluminum side-release buckles are dependable and strong enough to meet the needs of securing a patient into a Sked stretcher without the danger of breakage.
Cobra buckles are rated at 3,000 lbs. and are difficult to release while under tension. By using the Cobra buckle system, you will no longer have to weave the webbing through the buckles when packaging a patient, therefore patient packaging is often done in about half of the time as when using the original steel buckles.
Using the Cobra buckles means patients are evacuated quicker which means they can recieve treatment quicker.
