The Medevac II™ series of litters are the most widely used helicopter rescue litters in the world. Currently in use with all branches of the U.S. Military, the Japanese Self Defense Force, Canadian rescue organizations, Royal Australian Army, and are standard equipment aboard all U.S. Coast Guard helicopters and rescue boats. The Medevac II is modern Stokes-type litter constructed with the marine environment in mind.
The Medevac II litters are constructed of 304 stainless steel and then powder-coated a light gray for a long lasting finish.
The tubing used for the frame of these litters is 30% thicker than that used on MIL-SPEC litters. Included are 5 color-coded patient restraint straps with double locking Quick Release Safety Buckles. The troublesome wood rack used on the MIL-SPEC type Stokes litter has been replaced with stainless steel slats that run the full length of the litter. A smooth, plastic netting (with ½" openings) is used in place of the chicken wire liner. Optional flotation kits are available for each litter.
