APLS Rigid

APLS Rigid — Expandable Litter Dramatically Improves Evacuation

APLS Rigid is a lightweight portable litter that provides the structural benefits of a traditional military litter, but improves the evacuation and transportation of injured personnel, including in remote, rugged locations.

Weighing half of a traditional NATO litter, APLS Rigid combines a rigid, expandable infrastructure and a highly absorbent cellulose core to form a truly unique, state-of-the-art litter system.

The absorbent core contains and controls blood and bodily fluids, thus increasing patient comfort while reducing the risk of cross contamination.

A treated nylon backing protects against wind and moisture, while a Mylar lining holds in heat and protects against hypothermia.
