Flight Stretchers

Commercial Airline Stretcher

The Airline Passenger Transfer Stretcher is an easy way to move passengers with a need of further medical assistance due to injury, illness, or other condition.

The stretcher is used in the airport terminal and can be fitted with a raised side bar and handrail for those who are ambulatory. When the stretcher is not in use it folds flat and wheels into the aircraft’s cargo hold. The airline passenger transfer stretchers can be used with or without a seat belt restrainer (to improve comfort) or restraint straps that attach to either armrests on the seat or footrests on the seat (to provide stability). The stretcher easily fits into the cabin aisle when not in use.

The stretcher is certified to conform to international safety standards and is made of extremely durable high-density polyethylene and health-grade anodized aluminium. The Airline Passenger Transfer Stretcher’s non-skid tread surface ensures that it is firmly in place during transport. The airline passenger transfer stretchers are available either wired or wireless for patient monitoring purposes.

What Is A Commercial Flight Medical Escort?

A commercial flight medical escort is a licensed medical professional or qualified emergency medical services provider that provides assistance to passengers during their air travel. The emergency medical services provider will be on the same flight as the passenger requiring assistance and will be in constant contact with airline personnel. The patient’s healthcare provider may choose to meet the patient at the airport if they feel it is inappropriate for them to travel alone.
