Kimtek MEDLITE™ Series Offers Flexible Rescue Solutions
Westmore, Vermont, February 15, 2012 –– Kimtek’s MEDLITE™ Transport compact skid unit series is designed to be a cost effective, flexible solution for emergency response in environments not suitable for the traditional ambulance.
These lightweight, slip-in skid units expand the versatility of ATV/UTVs. The MEDLITE Transport is ideal for use by all public safety agencies and has applications on golf courses, sporting events, industrial plants and mines, and back country rescue. It is built for off road rough all terrain and wild land situations. It is a very effective way to put the EMT right next to the patient during transport.
The MEDLITE Transport is constructed of bright aluminum diamond plate with aluminum tubing sub-frame. All skid units come with an attendant seat with seat belt and a rescue area to secure a long board or stokes basket for patient transport. The MTB base unit uses a fixed seat position and quick disconnect system. The MTS model includes a three-position guide-lock attendant seat, a storage area with tailgate, two ambulance grade stainless steel grab bars, and a retractable IV pole. The MEDLITE MTD advance units adds a slide out tray in the storage area, an oxygen bottle holder, and a third attendant rail. The MTSTR Cot unit is designed to carry a patient on a full size ambulance stretcher and one attendant. The stretcher attaches in the same way as inside an ambulance.
