Its length, shoulder supports included, is 3.1 meters. Without the supports it is 2 meters long. Refolded in its carrying ruck-sack, the stretcher measures 85x55x22 centimeters. The weight is 16 kg (without carriage bag).
The fabric cover has a range of webbing straps in different colors for seizing hold of the injured person at all key points. Four outer compression straps ensure the patient is safely secured. A double zipper allows the fabric cover to be completely opened for inspection, including of the lower limbs. Additional zipper at the foot. The generous cover size and compression strap lengths allow a vacuum mattress to be fitted (indispensable for immobilizing the injured person).
The front and rear shoulder supports are fitted with comfortable padding. The front shoulder supports can be inserted in a straight position for carriage on general terrain or reversed in position for extremely steep slopes or jutting drops, thus preventing the rescuer from slipping out of the shoulder supports. The length of the rear supports allow the rescuer to have good ground visibility.
The stretcher, complete with shoulder supports, has been designed for supporting a SWL (Safety Working Load) regularly distributed on the surface of 180 kg (safety factor 1:4). This load can never be applied to a single point only. Kong has reproduced in its laboratory the real stretcher employment conditions and has submitted it to destructive tests through static stretching. The kit for hanging the stretcher to a helicopter or aerial rope-way can support a SWL of 500 kg (safety factor 1:4).
The wide tape for lowering the stretcher, when inserted correctly according to the instructions, is guaranteed for a SWL of 400 kg (safety factor 1:4)
