West-Marine stretchers are designed to rescue injured persons in the maritime environment.
A flexible stretcher for both vertical and horizontal lifting, with the advantage of lifting people where traditional stretchers usually do not have the necessary space.
Developed in collaboration with Chief Medical Officer of the Navy H.O. Bisgaard-Frantzen, a doctor for Frømandskorpset, Sirius Patruljen as well as doctor for divers.
Below you’ll find an Assembling Guide
The hoisting stretcher is assembled as shown in this Video
The stretcher is assembled in a fast and east way ensuring that the patient is fixed and protected from the effects of cold.
The lifting straps are designed so that the stretcher can be lifted horizontally, vertically or at an angle of 45 degrees. This makes it easy to transport injured people from inaccessible places.
If stretchers get into the water, the inflatable buoyancy chambers cause them to float and automatically turn to get the patient’s face up.
The stretcher is equipped with a neoprene hood and an effective “sprayhood”, which increases the chances of survival in water and reduces cooling of the patient.

Foot plate for use in vertical lifting keeping the patient’s safety in focus.
You are certain that patients are fixed and never slip out of the hoisting stretcher at a vertical lift.
Lifting belts for vertical or horizontal hoisting. Unique for this hoisting stretcher, as conventional only can be lifted horizontally.
You can lift people up where an ordinary stretcher does not have room.
The WM stretcher is delivered both with and without buoyancy.
Please compare with a conventional stretcher with and without buoyancy and see the difference!
The stretcher was developed at West-Marine in Esbjerg. Thus, we have technicians who know the stretcher from the very beginning.
