Yes.  The Med Sled® Evacuation Sleds are made out of high density polyethylene (HDPE) which has many beneficial  characteristics.  These include:

  1. Decon capable
  2. 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.
  3. Durability:  HDPE plastic is very durable and protects the patient from debris on the floor.
  4. 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.
