Designed by a US Navy SEAL and combat proven in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Semi-Rigid LIFT system from Matbock is one of the most important innovations in CASEVAC & Officer Rescue in a long time!
Six and a half feet long, the incredibly lightweight and resilient Lightweight Integrated Field Transport (LIFT) litter is long enough to accommodate all officers, operators, or civilians and has a maximum carrying capacity of 400 lbs for both an operator and their gear. The stretcher has 5 handles per side to give rescuers a multitude of configurations for carrying a downed officer, and still weighs in at only 10 oz. and can literally fit into a cargo pocket or small MOLLE Pouch.
Combined with the Combat Carbon Poles,the Lightweight Integrated Field Transport (LIFT) System becomes a semi-rigid litter and still adheres to the design principle of “Ounces Equal Pounds”! Weighing just 1.3 lbs apiece, with a max carrying capacity of 400 lbs, and designed to collapse small enough to be worn on the back of any plate carrier, these poles shed weight without compromising capability for transporting casualties.
In the end you get the lightest semi-rigid expedient medical litter / stretcher available at only 3.5 lbs total weight.
