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.
Skedco now has the Austrian made Skedco/COBRA® side release buckles that are dependable and strong enough to meet the needs of securing a patient into a Sked® stretcher without the danger of breakage. These buckles are rated at 3,000 pounds. They are durable and easy to use. When they are under tension they are very hard to release thus accidental release under tension is not an issue. With these buckles you will no longer have to weave the webbing through the original steel buckles when packaging a patient. Patient packaging is often done in about half of the time as when using the original steel buckles.
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. (NOT INCLUDED WITH SK-201-GR or SK-201C-GR)
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.
