Thermosoft Stretchers are developed
for tough climates and rough handling. The stretchers are hygienic, easy to clean
and can be stored over long periods. This product has been developed to meet
ergonomic requirements, the need to transfer patients, lifting and lowering requirements,
insulation and use on uneven surfaces.
They are simple to manoeuvre in restricted areas, narrow corridors,
and through emergency exits, etc.
Thermosoft Stretchers can be supplied rolled or folded, and take up
little space when stored and transported.
Thermosoft Stretchers are made from a laminated sheet of medium
density polyethylene and expanded polymeric foam of cross linked closed cells.
This combination gives high tear strength and high bearing load
capacity, combined with comfort and thermal insulation.
The material is water and chemical resistant. On exposure to
fire or very high temperatures, the stretchers will melt. When burned, water vapour
and CO2 are emitted, not hazardous gases.
