Ideally suited for confined area rescues, LSC's Medevac litter is currently carried as required equipment on board all US Navy surface vessels and SAR helicopters, as well as US Coast Guard cutters. The Medevac litter has been designed and engineered to withstand the conditions encountered in remote rescue operations, such as in-water rescue, submarine and shipboard rescue, mountain rescue, and other restricted areas that require a low profile, narrow litter. The Medevac litter is self-righting in water, and floats with the patient's head slightly reclined to provide maximum freeboard. The stowage case for the litter is equipped with a backpack harness for easy transport. Two carrying harnesses are included which allow personnel free use of their hands while transporting the litter and patient. Tubular stainless steel is used for the construction of the litter frame and skids. Fast acting, sliding couplers are used to secure the two halves of the litter and can be locked into place within seconds. The Medevac litter can be hoisted in either vertical or horizontal positions.

    We use this product on our fire and rescue vessels for quick recovery of patients both in and out of the water. The slim design makes it easy to use on board vessels. The hoist capability and hands-free carrying sling provide many avenues for use. This product can be used straight out of the package with very little training. Obviously the more training, the quicker, safer and better your rescuers become with the product.
