The SKED Rescue System
Sked basic rescue system
The original and still the best solution for confined space, high angle or technical rescue, and traditional land based applications, the SKED stretcher is a revolutionary design which provides outstanding patient protection and security. The sked comes equipped for hoisting by helicopter in horizontal position or hoisting in vertical position in caves or industrial confined spaces. When the patient is packaged, the stretcher becomes rigid. The durable plastic provides protection for the patient while allowing extrication through the most demanding confined spaces. The stretcher is rolled for storage in a tough cordura backpack which is included with the system. The system ships at 19 lbs. and comes complete for most applications. Available in international orange or O.D. green for military, SWAT and other tactical situations. Skedco will make the sked in sand color or white for snow operations on special order. Made in USA.

The Oregon Spine Splint II
Oregon Spine Splint
This spinal imobilization/extrication device is the only device of its type available that meets all of the established criteria for immobilizing a seated patient. Unlike other vest type immobilizers, the OSS II does not move up, down or rotate on the patient's torso when properly applied. The head straps are far superior to all other brands. An ideal companion for the Sked Stretcher System, when properly used the OSS II provides for safe removal of patients from injury sites without doing further damage to the spine. The unique criss-crossing shoulder strap design provides superior immobilization without restricting breathing and, for clavical fractures, can be re-configured to retract and immobilize the shoulders. The OSS II is designed to provide easy access to the patient's chest or abdominal area for treatment or diagnostic procedures. It can be used in place of a conventional short backboard and as a hip or leg splint. The OSS II includes a shoulder board not found in similar devices. It can be used to prevent compression of the shoulders when using a flexible stretcher. Available in international orange and subdued green. Made in USA.

Each Oregon Spine Splint II comes with:

  • SK-300: OSS II Main Body - this durable device includes color coded straps and buckles, crossing upper chest straps and liberal use of hook and loop material for reliable connection of immobilizing accessories
  • SK-301: Collar Strap - designed to immobilize the lower part of the head. It is customarily used over a cervical collar (Ambu Collar; see below)
  • SK-302: Forehead Restraint - another Skedco innovation that employs disposable replacement non-slip pads (Dispos-A-Pads) to avoid possible slipping and loss of immobilization. Extra wide and generous amounts of hook and loop material eliminates the need for taping the head to the device
  • SK-302: Dispos-A-Pads - ten disposable pads are provided for the Forehead Restraint strap. The pads are replaceable after each use to prevent possible contamination by body fluids. They come 10 in a package when re-ordering.
  • SK-303: Shoulder Board - one more Skedco innovation that prevents shoulder movement or compression when using a Sked, slatted litters or a blanket lift. It fits behind the shoulders, secured with a large velcro pad to keep it from moving around. No other vest style immobilizer has this.
  • SK-304: Head Pads - this set of one double and two single 3/4 inch thick head pads is used to maintain proper spacing between the board and the head. When the patient is laid down, it does not compress
  • SK-305: Carrying Case - a durable cordura pack with zippered pocket for the OSS II and all components
  • Instructions - the most comprehensive instructions provided with any device sold today. Composed with heavy input by leaders in the emergency medical field, these instructions are more comprehensive than found in most textbooks. Training video available at no charge.

Half-Sked & Ambu Collar
Half Sked
The Half-Sked™ is made of the same durable material as the Sked stretcher, but is only half as long. The patient is secured in the Half-Sked with sewn-in two inch webbing straps with fastex style double adjustable buckles, and patients can be extricated from the tightest of confined spaces. Unlike the Sked stretcher, the Half-Sked allows the patient to bend at the hips, allowing greater flexibility to turn corners. The Half-Sked should not be used as a hoisting or immobilization device, but for cost effective extrication from the most demanding confined spaces, there is nothing else quite like it anywhere. Available in International Orange and O.D. Green. Made in USA

Sked Water Rescue - Sked Floatation System
Sked Floatation System - International Orange Sked Floatation System - OD Green
Skedco

This floatation system maintains the Sked in a nearly vertical position in the water. It is self righting and keeps the patient's head completely out of the water, even in rough seas. The side floats and chest pad provide buoyancy sufficient to support two rescuers in the water as well as the patient, while the lead shot filled ballast keeps the foot end down and the head elevated out of the water. The system is available in a variety of configurations, including an option with CO2 inflatable side float logs and an empty ballast bag with hook and loop closure which can be filled with rocks just prior to use. Available in International Orange or Camouflage Green. Made in USA.

The SK-600 Basic Floam Floatation System (above left) comes with:

  • SK-601 Ballast Weight - a durable bag filled with 15 pounds of lead shot which attaches to the bottom of the Sked to make it self righting if it capsizes
  • SK-602 Inflatable Chest Pad - the chest pad attaches to the front of the packaged patient, not allowing the patient to float in a face down position. This chest pad inflates with 1 to 2 breaths of air and provides 14 pounds of buoyancy
  • SK-603 Ethafoam Floats (pair) - 6" rigid ethafoam floats whic mount on each side of the Sked Stretcher and provide the ideal amount of buoyancy
  • SK-604 Extra Long Handles - a pair of extra long handles is included to help hoist the stretcher up onto a boat or dock
  • SK-209 Retaining Strap - this strap is used to attach the foam floats and chest pad to the Sked Stretcher backpack, allowing the entire system to be packed as a single unit

The SK-600A Inflatable Floatation System (above right) comes with:

  • SK-605/SK-606 CO2 Inflatable Float 5" Diameter Logs (pair) - each of the float logs has an inflatable bladder covered with durable black nylon. The logs can be inflated instantly with the included CO2 cartridges, or can be inflated by mouth
  • SK-602 Inflatable Chest Pad - the chest pad attaches to the front of the packaged patient, not allowing the patient to float in a face down position. This chest pad inflates with 1 to 2 breaths of air and provides 14 pounds of buoyancy
  • SK-604 Extra Long Handles - a pair of extra long handles is included to help hoist the stretcher up onto a boat or dock
  • SK-607 Empty Ballast Bag - a durable bag with a hook and loop secured flap which can be filled with rocks or other heavy ballast material in the field, eliminating the need for the rescuer to carry the 15 pound regular ballast on extended excursions

The SK-600B Inflatable Floatation System is the same as the SK-600A, but with the 15 pound lead ballast in place of the empty ballast bag

Sked Rapid Deployment Water Rescue System
This unique system features a Sked stretcher pre-rigged for extremely rapid deployment into the water. Using CO2 inflatable float logs, this system can be in the water, ready to use in less than 30 seconds. A patient can be packaged and ready for retrieval in less than 30 seconds.
The Rapid Deployment System, designed especially for the Marine, Navy and Coast Guard use, puts the Sked Stretcher together with the Sked Inflatable Floatation System in a large custom duffel bag. The system is maintained fully rigged in the bag. When deploying the system the user simply unzips the duffel bag, unrolls the Sked, triggers the CO2 cartridges, pulls two straps, and drops the ready to use system into the water. Skedco also offers a Rapid Deployement Conversion Kit which includes everything for rapid deployement except the stretcher, for those who already have the Sked Basic Rescue System.
The SK-650 Rapid Deployement Water Rescue System comes with:

  • SK-200: Sked Basic Rescue System - the complete basic system, including the stretcher, backpack and hoisting accessories

  • SK-601: Ballast Weight - a durable bag filled with 15 pounds of lead shot which attaches to the bottom of the Sked with hook and loop fastener. This makes the Sked self righting
  • SK-604: Extra Long Handles - a pair of extra long handles is included to help hoist the stretcher up onto a boat or dock
  • SK-652: Sling and Carabiner Float - a handy float with loops on it, used to prevent the slings and carabiner from sinking into the Sked. It prevents entanglement with the patient's legs
  • SK-654: Rapid Deployment Carrying Case - the specially designed duffel bag which is just the right size to hold the rigged system. Includes pockets for storing accessory items

The SK-651 Rapid Deployment Conversion Kit comes with everything shown above except the Sked Basic Rescue System, so you can convert your own Sked.
