With its heavy-duty all-aluminum frame construction, high-density polyethylene shell and patient support and restraint system, the Bradco Stretcher System is ideal for any rescue situation. The spring-suspended patient support and restraint system is constructed from vinyl-coated nylon and supports the patient several inches off the bottom frame of the stretcher. This makes for a smooth and comfortable ride. The double flap cover and restrain strap system allows a patient o be transported in almost any position with minimal discomfort and maximum security. The polyethylene shell is resistant to chemical agents such as chlorine or petroleum products, slides smoothly over all kinds of terrain and resists snagging on protruding objects.
