We developed the Adjustable Litter Strap because it allows minor adjustments to be made while the litter is being carried. Quickly releasing the buckle extends the strap, preventing the rescuer from being pulled down with the litter. Sewn loop strength exceeds 36 kN (8,093 lbf). The strap can also be used for pick-offs.
The Spec Pak Lifting Bridle System, now included with Spec Pak, allows for horizontal, semi-sitting and semi-vertical (80-degree) positioning of the patient. This method of lifting is useful when longer suspension times are anticipated, reducing the chances of the patient developing further suspension syndrome.
