The ME.BER "ERGON" scoop stretcher is designed and developed by rescue operators and emergency equipment technicians to offer outstanding performance, never achieved before.
Guarantees maximum patient comfort in the main decubitus areas thanks to a special soft material moulded on a high resistance plastic polymer (MeBer. exclusive HC3 - High Comfort Composite Cell).
Besides patient comfort, "ERGON" is designed to assist rescuers and operators thanks to unique solutions. The handles are lined with HC3 and are inclined at 20° so as to allow the best grip.
Special eyelets and pins have been positioned along the handles to easily fix snap hooks & straps. The distance between the leading edges of the two blades is just 25 mm.
This enables a perfect containment of the spinal column compared to normal scoop stretchers with a blade separation of 80 mm. The shape of the blade is therefore larger and has been designed to be easily and gradually placed between the patient and the ground.
The use of HC3 material grants an overall structural stability and allows high thermal insulation. This helps to prevent hypothermia and, thanks to the stretcher design, enable extended transport of the patient.
A further technological revolution is the use of the Flexilock (patent pending) articulated locking device, which enables the operator to separate the stretcher in two halves, and also to rescue patients in unnatural positions and tough situations.
In addition to the standard rescue techniques, "ERGON" enables the first responder to easily carry out rescue operations in difficult and uncomfortable places, even when the patient is critically injured.
Also available as the "ERGON Junior" variable geometry paediatric comfort stretcher.
