Our new Stretcher System is a versitile modular tool that enables safe horizontal and vertical casualty evacuation. The system is extremely quick and simple to use. Even under extremely difficult conditions. Ideal for both tactical and rescue scenario’s.
TAGS® HAMSS has a width of 68cm/27” across both the shoulder and hip areas and is 205cm/80” long, giving more security and protection to the casualty. The stretcher has six horizontal lifting loops, three down each side, positioned along the main trunk/torso of the casualty. All the main casualty securing cross straps are of 25mm webbing with adjustable Cobra Buckles.
It has an integral body harness made from 25mm web with crutch padding and adjustable foot support with padding for extra security and to stop body slip when in a vertical or angular mode of lift.
The two main vertical lifting loops are positioned at the shoulder which gives a true vertical lifting position for the casualty. The head section can be formed into a cone to disperse debris when dragging through confined spaces. The strap holding the stretcher in position when rolled has a fitted pad and can be used for a head restraint by threading it around the outer loops on the coned area.
