The Scoop Stretcher is designed to allow easy access and movement of the individual in awkward spaces and confined areas while eliminating body roll manoeuvres of casualties with suspected spinal injuries, helping to eliminate the risk of further trauma.
Made from high strength aluminium and high density polypropylene precision mouldings, the Scoop Stretcher is lightweight yet strong. It is resistant to corrosion, heat, cold and body fluids and its seamless construction makes it easy to clean and durable.
The Scoop Stretcher features twin safety lock hinges for quick, easy uncoupling of one or both ends of the stretcher enabling it to be split into two pieces. Ergonomically designed operator handles help support correct posture for lifting, therefore reducing the likelihood of manual handling injuries.
Telescopic tubes allow the stretcher to be adjusted to suit the height of the casualty and optional biosafe speed clip straps keep the casualty safely secure.
The Scoop Stretcher is completely X-ray and MRI scanner compatible making it an ideal solution to casualty immobilisation from the scene of injury right through to hospital treatment and diagnosis.
Also available in all aluminium construction. Accessories available include Biosafe speed clips and combi head immobiliser.
The Scoop Stretcher can be used in conjunction with the basket stretcher - please see this items in evacuation equipment for more information.
