This type of stretcher is also known as a folding or flat stretcher. it is much lighter than a standard wheeled stretcher and makes the task of moving a patient down stairs or out of tight spaces much easier.
This stretcher is made of rubberized canvas or other flexible material such as heavy plastic, often with wooden slats sewn into pockets.
The stair chair helps rescuers move seated medical patients down stair ways and through tight places where a traditional stretcher will not fit. newer brands are made of sturdy folding frames with either canvas or hard plastic seats and are easy to store.
This device is sometimes referred to as a strokes basket. mostly used for wilderness or cliff rescue situations.
This device is typically made of hard plastic or aluminum. it is called a scoop stretcher because it splits vertically into two pieces, which can be used to scoop the patient up.
Spine boards are also known as backboards.
Special spinal immobilization boards are made to fit infants and children.
