The Bradco Stretcher System is a highly featured litter, with its heavy-duty all-aluminum frame construction, high-density polyethylene shell and patient support and restraint system.
This stretcher is especially well-suited for Industrial Rescue applications. The Spring-Suspended patient support and restraint system is constructed from vinyl-coated nylon and supports the patient several inches off the bottom frame of the stretcher. This makes for as smooth and comfortable a ride as possible.
The double flap cover and restraint strap system allows a patient to be transported in almost any position with a maximum of comfort and security.
The polyethylene shell is resistant to chemical agents such as chlorine or petroleum products, slides smoothly over all kinds of terrain and resists being caught or hooked on protruding objects. It is unaffected by temperature extremes and UV inhibitors reduce fading or deterioration even under constant exposure to sunlight. The shell helps to protect the patient from coming into contact with sharp objects, rough terrain, snow and ice, and is removable for easy cleaning as well as replacement.
The Bradco Stretcher System comes complete with the basket stretcher, patient support and restraint system, 4 - lifting straps and has a Traverse-rated load capacity of 11 kN (2,500 lb.). An optional dust and storage cover is also available.
Although the Bradco is well suited for any type of rescue, it is ideally suited for industrial applications of any kind. With its built-in restraint system there is no guess-work for under-trained personnel, and it is so robust that it will take the rigors of any environment. You can easily restrain a patient for either a vertical or a horizontal evacuation.
