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.
