Confined spaces and narrow openings require the litter to be rigged with the patient held vertically in order to fit, and these openings usually end with a 90-degree transition. The Vertical-Lift Litter Harness eases the transition over an edge when a high anchor point is not available, such as a parapet roof, out a window, off a tank top, or over a handrail. This reduces the manpower requirements, improves patient care and reduces risk. A unique spreader bar allows the litter to pivot between the side straps as the head of the litter clears the edge. Constructed of 26.7 kN (6,000 lbf) one-inch flat web for high strength and light weight, the Vertical-Lift Litter Harness features buckles for easy adjustment and comes with a Delta Quick Link.
