The Franco Garda stretcher can be used in an aquatic environment.
It is approved for rescue on most helicopters.

In order to meet the requirements of solidity and safety, the Franco Garda stretcher is composed of a tubular frame in ions covered with solid and repairable composite material.

The patented hinge system allows the stretcher to be folded, separated into three elements and to ensure double locking when fitting the carabiner.

The shell, (tubular structure in stainless steel covered with twintex), is light and extremely resistant. The articulation/separation system allowing the choice to fold up or separate the three parts of the shell, has no loose parts and is easy to handle, even in extreme conditions.


The medical cover is equipped with a high-performance device for immobilizing the patient, as well as quick access pockets for the upper and lower limbs of the injured person. The stretcher comes with the medicalization cover and the set of slings for winching.


The medicalization system has been studied in collaboration with French and Italian doctors specialized in mountain rescue. The patient immobilization device is effective and complete: padded flaps for thoracic support, comfort mattress in closed cells, adjustable head support, reinforced straps, immobilization of the feet.
