Ready-Heat™ 4 Panel (torso size) and 6 Panel (full body) Blankets are used to aid in the treatment of hypothermia, shock and patient trauma. Due to their high tensile strength both can be used as an evacuation litter (if needed) and can carry a person weighing up to 250 lbs. Both blankets are US Military protocol used in the transport of wounded soldiers and the Ready-Heat™ 4 panel (torso size) is carried by every US Army Medic. This blanket is now available in our standard medical blue color or in our military strategic color design with blue on the inside and beige on the outside.
All Ready-Heat™ Blankets using panel technology come individually sealed in an oxygen free protective poly-bag. When the poly-bag is opened, the blanket’s heating elements react with the oxygen in the atmosphere and generate heat. The heat generated will provide sufficient warmth and comfort to the user for up to 8 hours.
