Military Stretcher Loading Systems
Stretcher Loading Systems are Frestems’ main R&D focus area and this is where most of the product development activities take place.
The main purposes of a Stretcher Loading System are:
- Loading patients quickly into the ambulance vehicle. Sometimes the nearby environment is hostile, and therefore swift and easy operation is the a key feature for any system
- Fastening the stretcher into the vehicle during the transportation. Military vehicles operate in very rough terrain, and therefore stretcher and patient need to be securely fastened to the vehicle but in a way that will attenuate strain
- Maneuver the patient inside the vehicle for better treatment positions. To do this stretcher platform may have side, forward and backwards slide mechanism and shock/anti-shock positions
The key component in fastening stretchers to vehicle is stretcher platform like ProMIL 100 or ProMIL 150, that can be mounted for example over ProMIL 214, 245 or 360 base frames. Products under this category include floor and wall mounted stretcher places, foldable stretcher place for saving space and treatment base with suspension.
Military Stretcher Equipment
Products in this category are STANAG 2040 and EN 1789 compliant field stretchers and foldable stretcher carts for easy carriage of the field stretchers. Frestems stretchers are world famous for being the most durable, lightweight and climate resistant tactical litters on the market.
Military Ambulance Subsystems
When equipping military ambulances Frestems has designed and manufactured numerous special subsystems that were needed in the projects. Products in this category include patient seats, stretcher lifters, medical cabinets, oxygen systems and storage modules.
