The Neil Robertson stretcher is a heavy duty lifting strecher designed for removing an injured person from spaces where access doors, or hatches are too small to permit the use of regular stretchers. Spaces such as engine-rooms, cargo holds and boiler rooms are a few examples on a vessel. The Neil Robertson stretcher is made of flexible semi rigid slats and canvas panels with four large grab handles. It can be easily folded when not in use. The stretcher features 5 x strong buckled straps which when firmly wrapped around the casualty support the head and body ensuring negligible movement on the stretcher, which is very important when transferring injured person.
