Stretcher support for nautical use with vertical and lateral shock absorption and adjustable inclination
Shock absorbing stretcher-support for nautical use, with self-adjusting hydro pneumatic suspension based on the patient's weight. Particularly recommended for high speed boats, it can absorb the shocks of the impact with the waves with values up to 10 g with a suspension stroke of 500 mm. MAST 25 is the first device able to absorb non only the vertical shock but also the side shock due to the rolling transmitted to the patient, during navigation at high speed on rough sea. MAST 25 is the latest STEM achievement in the healthcare transport field, as a result of the long experience of STEM Marine department in the nautical sector and in the anti-vibration systems on ambulance vehicles. The system is equipped with a hydraulic power unit, which adjusts the suspension according to the actual weight of the patient. The installation only requires an adequate structural fixing on the floor and a 12 or 24 V DC electrical connection MAST 25 support has fixings points for medical equipment, such as defibrillator, lung ventilator, infusion pump, IV pole, etc., so these devices are protected from shocks, too. MAST 25 allows the loading of both road and basket stretchers. MAST 25 can be used as sitting bench with back rest for passengers. You can lock the suspension in order to make cardiac massage. MAST 25 features the possibility to adjust the stretcher tray height and to change the inclination of the stretcher of +/- 15° in suspension or rigid mode.
