There are several factors to consider when buying basket stretchers. The ADVANTAGE Basket Stretcher is made with an internal stainless steel frame that is rated for 2500 lbs. It has a single plane sliding surface on the bottom for ease of use. The top tube is reinforced to give it a secure grip and a second rail provides full options for tying in the patient. The basket's netting is made from durable 7/8" tubing for comfort and safety.
This ultra-durable stainless-steel structure is made to carry a person's weight off the field. It is covered with a protective coating to prevent rust and corrosion. The basket stretcher's molded runners and lifting sling make it easier to transport. These features meet the requirements of the FDA and CE. The Head Immobilizer basket stretcher is also made with a sturdy carrying strap and a foam pad to give the patient a comfortable experience.
Another consideration when purchasing the Litter Basket Stretcher is the type of use it will receive. Some models are more durable than others. If you use the basket stretcher extensively, it will need to be portable, so you may want to look into a sturdier option. For example, the Ferno Model 71 Basket Stretcher is durable. You can use it for a wide variety of purposes. If you need it to carry a patient to the hospital or at home, this stretcher can be easily transported.
