The Basket Stretcher is a hard wearing rescue stretcher which can be dragged, carried or lifted, if required, without affecting the casualties’ wellbeing. Designed with a spacious interior, each basket is large enough to accommodate rescue blankets for extra individual comfort.
The Basket Stretcher’s high density, cross linked polyethylene shell helps to reduce the risk of splintering or cracking. Both the standard and split basket stretcher provide full body protection and come complete with a footrest for comfort and stability and three movable casualty restraints with plastic safety buckles. Other casualty/patient straps are available for purchase separately.
Both Basket Stretchers are ideal for the rescue of casualties from many situations such as mountain rescues, disaster zones, building sites, quarries or mines, as well as the transportation of sports injury victims from such places as the sports field or ski slope.
The Basket Stretcher can be used in conjunctions with the Millennia Board and Scoop Stretcher - please see these items in evacuation equipment for more information.
