Weighing just under 5kg, the Saviour Tactical Stretchers come supplied in either a roll top shoulder bag, or a rucksack style bag.
Once out of the bag the Saviour’s LDPE skin lays flat following a simple reverse bend at each end. This facilitates easy patient loading unhindered by curled stretcher ends, and sets the Saviour apart from most of the competition. All materials are resistent to harsh environments and designed to survive heat, cold, salt, damp and sand. Saviour’s feature a double central skin to allow extra spinal support and block spinal extension once formed. Colour coded straps make for intuitive use without prior training.
Once fully formed the stretcher wraps around the patient, and in doing so offers a level of pelvic splinting. There is a unique head-hugger system that wraps around the head to protect it during evacuation, and is designed to interlock with a cervical collar if one is used. Head-huggers can have optional ear-holes if required. The figure of eight at the feet and the cross straps at the chest secure the patient when lifting vertically.
Carrying – Saviour Stretchers feature 6 reinforced hand holds to allow for easy extended duration carries, and is easily carried by 2 or 4 people. The handles are designed to rotate and still allow enough space for a pole to be threaded should it be desired. Pole carries can be from each end, or across for bariatric patients.
Dragging – Optional 6 metre drag harnesses can be attached to either the head or foot end to allow for single operator drag rescue. The LDPE skin of the Saviour stretcher is able to withstand reapeated heavy dragson all surfaces including concrete and tarmac without failure.
Combining drag straps at head and foot allows for controlled lowering down slopes or stairs, and assisting around obstacles.
Vertical Hoist – The Saviour Tactical is fitted with a 200kg rated eye at the head end which allows for vertical hauling out of confined spaces or through hatches and doorways, in addition to the ability for winching / dragging up slopes and embankments. The foot figure of 8 and the cross chest straps mean that the patient is totally secure during vertical use.
(nb. It is always recommended to have a second point of contact with the patient during vertical hauling.)
Float – Saviour Stretchers are neutrally bouyant and float if dropped into water. If the patient is fitted with a suitable lifejacket then the patient in the stretcher will float, and is able to be towed or swum via use of the drag straps to a place of safety. All materials used in Saviour Stretchers are designed to withstand use in fresh or salt water.
Evacuating: Onward patient journey
Saviour Stretchers are specifically sized to fit inside standard basket stretchers found on Search and Rescue airframes, Fire Service appliances or Air Ambulances. This allows the patient to stay in the Saviour throughout the journey to hospital.
The end of the Saviour does not fold up and therefore allows the patient to have a femoral traction splint applied if required. Saviour Stretchers work perfectly with the Lucas Mechanical Chest Compressor. Saviour & Lucas 2 Chest Compression System
Once in hospital the Saviour is x-ray translucent and CT friendly meaning that the patient can go from point of injury to CT scanner on a single device. Post incident the Saviour is designed to be fully infection control compliant, and allows for easy decontamination. Should a strap be soiled beyond redemption each individual strap is user replaceable in a matter of minutes, making the Saviour highly cost effcient and truly multi-patient use compared to other stretchers with fully sewn systems that mean the stretcher has to be scrapped when a strap is soiled beyond decontamination.
