Skedco developed the Half-Sked for extricating patients from spaces too tight or restricted for other stretchers. Ideal for tactical teams that need to secure and rapidly extricate an injured person, the Half-Sked allows rescuers to bend the patient at the hips, allowing greater flexibility to turn corners in caves or confined spaces. It uses two-inch-wide chest and leg straps with side-release buckles to package the patient quickly and securely, particularly valuable if the patient must be immediately evacuated from a high risk area.
