The development history of Stretchers.


The development of the stretcher has taken hundreds of years to come up with the wide range of systems available today. When a critically injured person has been resuscitated at the scene, he or she must be safely and quickly transported to hospital for further resuscitation and treatment. The earliest stretchers were used for carrying the wounded in war. As the medical system expanded, stretchers became widely available in public systems such as hospitals, emergency vehicles and fire brigades.


The common categories of Stretchers.


·Folding stretcher

Our folding stretcher is made of high-strength aluminium alloy and oxford leather surface. Its most distinctive feature is its compact folding design, which is mainly suitable for hospitals, sports grounds, ambulances and troops in the field to transport the sick and wounded.


·Ambulance stretcher

The ambulance stretcher is a type of stretcher commonly used in ambulances. In terms of structure, the ambulance stretcher is equipped with telescopic handles at both ends for easy lifting of the stretcher. Unlike the folding stretcher, it has a low frame structure that allows it to be moved on the ground and lifted for walking, making it very flexible.


·Basket Stretcher

The basket stretcher is shaped like a boat. When carrying a trapped person, the person is placed inside the stretcher and the stretcher is enclosed around the "edges" with a flat belt on the front to keep the injured person inside. The most important feature of this design is that the stretcher does not shift so that the trapped person can be removed from the stretcher.


·Stair Stretcher

The stair stretcher is shaped like a moving chair and has four wheels, two at the back with brakes. There are two telescopic handles at the front and an additional track at the back. It slides down the steps by means of the track. To use it, the patient is fixed to the chair, pushed by one person at the back and protected by one person at the front.


The above description will have given you a good idea of the classification of stretchers. It is worth noting that when carrying overweight and confused casualties, the weight of the person and the structure of the stretcher should be taken into account. It is important not to carry the person or the stretcher until they are properly prepared, as this is to prevent accidents such as falls and injuries on the way.


Why use the Stretcher?


The reasons for using a stretcher are simple: it is light, durable and simple to use. In terms of design, stretchers are very flexible and such a wide variety proves that stretchers can be used in different scenarios.
