Skedco Bariatric Sked Stretcher

The Skedco Bariatric Sked Stretcher is designed to move obese patients through difficult areas with less risk of injuring your back. It is 4 feet wide, a full 30.5cm (12") wider than the standard Sked. It is a full 2.43m (8') long. It is made of a very tough non absorbing polyethylene plastic.  This will allow for containment of the very large patients inside the stretcher thus preventing possible injuries to them from being moved. It functions just as the standard Sked. It is dragged over whatever terrain the patient is in. It can be dragged up a ramp to the floor of the ambulance or hoisted onto a bariatric guerney.

It has a pair of lift slings that are long enough to accommodate nearly any size patient. They are used to hoist the patient onto a bariatric guerney for transport in the ambulance. Along with the slings there is also included a large steel carabiner that has a minimum break strength of 4,000 kg that is used to join the sling ends together and clipped into the hoist mechanism. There is also a tow strap included to allow two more people to assist in dragging.
