Telestretch

About

Portable stretcher for soldiers

Telestretch is an innovative, expandable spinal board that enables medics to evacuate wounded soldiers from the battlefield more quickly. Casualties suffering spinal injuries require immediate isolation of the neck and immobilisation of the spine, and Telestretch is designed to facilitate the immediate treatment of such injuries. Measuring 30 x 45 cm when compacted, the board has arms that extend to match the height of the soldier, an improvement on the army’s current fabric stretcher. The board then connects to mounts on the soldier’s body armour and helmet, locking the spinal column in a straight line. When attached to the standard military issue daypack, Telestretch is easily transportable, increasing the chance of immediate treatment.
