Skedco Sked Basic Rescue System

SKU: PM-SK2002 Category:


The Sked stretcher is a revolutionary design which provides outstanding patient protection and security.

An assortment of handles and straps permits 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, Cordura® 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″ long by 9″ in diameter. Compact storage, ease of use, and adaptability in means of transport have made Skedco’s Sked stretcher prevalent with fire departments, rescue squads, the military, industrial response teams, and ski patrols.

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 19 lbs. and comes complete for most applications. This system includes the Sked Stretcher, a Cordura backpack, horizontal lift slings (pair), the Sked tow strap, removable webbing handles, a steel locking “D” carabiner, and the Sked vertical lift sling.
