Yes. The Med Sled® Evacuation Sleds are made out of high density polyethylene (HDPE) which has many beneficial characteristics. These include:
- Decon capable
- Slick surface: Eases the amount of effort it takes to move a patient on to the sled (using the Roll & Pull method) It also reduces the effort needed to slide an evacuee down the hall over and through debris filled hallways and stairwells.
- Durability: HDPE plastic is very durable and protects the patient from debris on the floor.
- Memory management: The Med Sled® maintains it’s shape. When rolled up the sled will stay in roll form. When unrolled, the Med Sled® will maintain it’s cocoon shape. It will take on backboard like qualities that aid in protecting the patient while in the sled.
