GMS rescue sleds

GMS rescue sleds - Rescue sleds that allow the injured to remain in a seated position when evacuated.

Designed to evacuate the injured, this rescue sled is based on a sit-ski design and equipped with a removable seat to reduce the need to transfer to a stretcher. With three positions (seated, legs elevated, or completely flat), the sled is equipped with anchoring points that allow the injured individual to be evacuated via chairlift.
