Casualty handling on the battlefield is critical to maintaining morale.
To achieve this not only is excellent training needed but also a high-quality ambulance fit-out. Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has developed a range of stretcher systems to be fitted into armoured ambulances and will be discussing these during DSEI 2015 on stand S3-310.
The systems have been developed based on the proven experience of supplying stretcher solutions for a range of armoured ambulances in service across Europe and more than 800 stretcher systems for the ubiquitous Land Rover ambulance, which has been in service around the world for more than 40 years with the British and other armies.
Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group chief executive Steve Fitz-Gerald said: "The skills of our engineering teams in developing these stretcher systems demonstrate that not only that Marshall is able to work closely with the end-user and our partners but also has the innovate skills to deliver a quality, long-lasting solution which is fit for purpose.
"Whenever nations are either upgrading their vehicle fleets or purchasing new ones there are opportunities for us to integrate the medical equipment into the clinical white space, as well as provide stretcher systems using our proven vehicle engineering skills."
The stretcher systems are designed to maximise the working space in each type of vehicle for the medical attendant to monitor and treat the casualty, whether on a stretcher or seated.
The loading systems are engineered to minimise the effort and time of loading the stretcher by the combat medics into the vehicle so reducing the risk to themselves, the casualty and the vehicle.
