The Half-SKED is made of the same durable material as the SKED stretcher, but is only half as long. The patient is secured in the Half-SKED with sewn-in two inch webbing straps with fastex style double adjustable buckles, and patients can be extricated from the tightest of confined spaces. Unlike the SKED stretcher, the Half-SKED allows the patient to bend at the hips, allowing greater flexibility to turn corners. The Half-SKED should not be used as a hoisting or immobilisation device, but for cost effective extrication from the most demanding confined spaces there is nothing quite like it anywhere. Available in International Orange and O.D. Green.
