Quickly and Efficiently Package and Extract a Patient from a Confined Space with the CMC Skedco Drag-N-Lift Harness

In addition to being a leading designer, manufacturer, and worldwide distributor of rescue and work-at-height equipment, which includes harnesses, pulleys, ropes, and more, CMC Rescue is regarded as a globally respected, emergency-response educator. To meet the need for a quick-extraction device when spinal immobilization is not a concern, the company developed and engineered the new CMC Skedco Drag-N-Lift Harness, which is specially designed to rapidly package and extract a patient from a confined space.

CMC Skedco Drag-N-Lift Harness

Featuring compact storage, ease of use, and flexibility in transport, the popular, U.S.-made CMC Skedco Drag-N-Lift Harness enables the rescuer to employ a fast, load-and-go technique. Designed with corrosion-resistant hardware and an integrated harness assembly, which is comprised of color-coded straps and quick-connect fasteners, the patient can be efficiently secured for a vertical lift, a horizontal carry-out, or a drag extraction. Attach a lifting bridle/spreader bar to its vertical-lift attachment points to accommodate a rope-system lift.  Its padded-back section and leg loops ensure ample patient comfort during all extractions.

It is constructed from heavy-duty, EZ-glide plastic that becomes rigid once it is curved around the patient to form a protective stretcher. Handles are strategically located on the sides, top, and bottom of the harness, allowing the stretcher to be pulled by sliding it on its smooth bottom surface. If a spinal immobilization is needed, the device is compatible with the Skedco Oregon Spine Splint (OSS II) and cervical collar. Some additional specs include:

  • x-ray translucent
  • weight: 12 pounds (5.4 kilograms)
  • cleans easily
  • a heavy-duty, water-resistant Cordura® nylon storage bag is included
  • UL classified to NFPA 1983 (2012 ED) Class III Victim Extrication Device
