SkedŽ Flotation System


SKEDŽ FLOTATION SYSTEM

This flotation system maintains the SkedŽ in a nearly vertical position in the water. It is self-righting and keeps the patient's head completely out of water, even in rough seas. The side floats and chest pad provide buoyancy sufficient to support two rescuers in the water in addition to the patient, while the lead shot filled ballast keeps the foot end down and the head elevated out of the water. The system is available in a variety of configurations, including an option with CO2 inflatable side float logs and and an empty ballast bag with hook and loop closure, which can be filled with rocks just prior to use. Available in International Orange or Camouflage Green. Made in USA.

The SK-600 Basic Foam Flotation System comes with:

Ethafoam Floats (pair) - two rigid ethafoam floats which mount on each side of the SkedŽ Stretcher and provide the ideal amount of buoyancy.

Chest Pad - the chest pad attaches to the front of the packaged patient, not allowing the patient to float in a face down position.

Ballast Weight - a durable bag filled with 15 pounds of lead shot which attaches to the bottom of the SkedŽ with hook and loop fasteners. This causes the SkedŽ to self-right if it capsizes.

Extra Long Handles - a pair of extra long handles is included to help hoist the stretcher up onto a boat or dock.

Retaining Strap - this straps is used to attach the foam floats and chest pad to the SkedŽ Stretcher backpack, allowing the entire system to be packed as a single unit.

The SK-600A Inflatable Flotation System comes with:

CO2 Inflatable Float Logs (pair) - each of the float logs has an inflatable bladder covered with durable black nylon. The logs can be inflated instantly with the included CO2 cartridges, or can be inflated by mouth.

Chest Pad - identical to the chest pad described above. Available in camouflage green for military applications, international orange for civilian rescue.

Empty Ballast Bag - a durable bag with a hook and loop secured flap which can be filed with rocks or other heavy material in the field, eliminating the need for the rescuer to carry the 15 pound regular ballast on extended excursions.

Extra Long Handles - a pair of extra long handles is included to help hoist the stretcher up onto a boat or dock.

The SK-600B Hybrid Inflatable Flotation System

Same as the SK-600A, but with the 15 pound lead ballast in place of the empty ballast bag.


SIX FOOT LONG LIFTING HANDLES

This pair of extra long handles is designed for lifting the SkedŽ from the water to the deck of motor lifeboats and other larger boats, or over a cliff or dock edge. They attach through grommets near the patient's shoulders and have five sewn-in loops, making it easy to hoist the SkedŽ hand over hand.
