For more than 25 years we have seen significant technological advances in the emergency care industry and are proud to have played a key role in the research and development of improved patient care equipment and techniques.
It all started in 1989 with a new splint designed to treat extremity injuries using vacuum technology instead of air pressure. Today, Hartwell Medical manufactures the two best-selling vacuum splint products in the industry; the well known EVAC-U-SPLINT® and the new, semi-disposable FASPLINT®. Trauma specialists throughout the world prefer these products because vacuum immobilization significantly reduces tissue, nerve and vessel damage, resulting in shorter hospital stays and reduced health care costs for patients.
In 1999, Hartwell Medical introduced the award-winning CombiCarrier®, the first combination backboard and scoop stretcher. This innovative device saved rescuers valuable budget dollars and storage space by combining 2 products into 1. Today, the next generation CombiCarrierII® is even thinner, lighter, and stronger than the original and continues to be the ideal patient handling and transfer device.
Since our inception, Hartwell Medical has been known for innovative design, quality craftsmanship and exceptional customer service. All of our products are subjected to real-life field tests to ensure they meet our high clinical standards and your ever-changing needs. Should you have any questions about the use or care of our products, we will be happy to help. Hartwell Medical is continually working to provide you with quality products for life.
