The SLIX 100 XL Bariatric Rescue Stretcher is designed for the transport and evacuation of clinically obese persons from areas where a rigid stretcher is unusable or unsuitable. A robust, compact and lightweight stretcher. The flexible material combined to a smooth finish allows easy sliding and permits the stretcher to be rolled to facilitate transport. No webbing passes under the stretcher preventing damage whilst dragging. Strong handles around the stretcher allow it to be maneuvered by several rescuers.
The stretcher may be hauled vertically or horizontally. The lifting strops secure and allow the stretcher to mould around the casualty. Extensions are provided to widen the stretcher when required. The SLIX 100XL was developed further in consultation with the West Midlands FB Technical Rescue Unit.
