Compact, decontaminable, durable and adaptable, the HMH Sked Stretcher is ideal in mass-casualty and hazardous materials incidents. It can be dragged over virtually any terrain including stairways and can be rapidly deployed by one person. Made of medium-density polyethylene plastic, the HMH Sked withstands high temperatures and is unbreakable as low as 120 degrees Fahrenheit below zero.
Mass Casualty Incidents: The HMH Sked can be stored flat on pallets with the straps packaged separately, which allows quick movement of a large number of stretchers to an incident with a large number of patients, such as a plane crash or explosion. Pallets of 50 to 200 HMH stretchers can be moved by truck or airlifted by helicopter to facilitate the rapid movement of patients.
Haz-Mat Incidents: Doing anything in Level A and B protective suits is difficult. The HMH Sked allows a patient or a downed rescuer to be quickly rolled onto the stretcher and pulled out of the hot zone by rescuers a rope length away. Polypropylene straps are resistant to chemicals and the two-inch side-release buckles are easy to operate even with thick gloves.
