The updated EVAC Body Splint features a thicker, more abrasion resistant lower skin. Alongside this is a new lightweight upper skin which maintains the overall low weight.
The EVAC has a width of 68cm across both the shoulder and hip areas and is 205cm long, giving more security and protection to the casualty.
It has six horizontal lifting loops, three down each side, positioned along the main trunk/torso of the casualty. All the main casualty securing cross straps are of 50mm webbing with adjustable clip buckles. It has an integral body harness made from 25mm web with crutch padding and adjustable foot support with padding for extra security and to stop body slip when in a vertical or angular lifting mode
The two main vertical lifting loops are positioned at the shoulder which gives a true vertical lifting position for the casualty. The head section can be formed into a cone to deflect debris when dragging through confined spaces.
The padded head restraint strap also doubles up as the securing strap when the EVAC is rolled up for transport and storage
It can also be used as a lifting mat without the use of the straps. Two people can transfer a casualty from one flat area to another keeping the casualty in a horizontal mode.
The Camouflage EVAC and bag are made from 2000 denier cordura nylon.
