Water Stretcher / aquatic rescue

Water Stretcher
Water Stretcher

Existing stretchers are large and bulky, making it not only difficult to bring to water rescues but even hindering the rescue time. Water Stretcher comes with compressed gas cylinders on both sides, enabling users to quickly inflate the stretcher. Utilizing the air in-between the layers, this stretcher can float on water, minimizing the burden of both the wounded and the rescue team. The middle part of the Water Stretcher is made of special composite PVC plastic boards. Not only is it easy to roll up for storage, it also prevents the stretcher from deforming, enabling rescue personnel to carry it easily.
