This stretcher is built like a spine with protruding "ribs". The
ribs are set over and around the patient and then fixed into
Once the stretcher is raised the patient is kept in the same
position, no need to "pick the patient up onto" the stretcher.
The stretcher can be held low with
inserted below and beside the patient after it has been raised
for fast and comfortable shoulder-sling evacuation, while the
stretcher can stay low, giving it extra protection in war
when done, the ribs fold up close to each other and the
center "spine" pole can fold as well , into something much
smaller and lighter than the usual canvas stretchers.
||Interesting idea. I was initially distracted by the name
thinking it had something to do with picking up people
who collapsed due to over-consumption of alcohol.
Maybe call it a "Hangunder Stretcher" since the patient is
hanging under it.
||It seems like having the spine be telescoping rather than
folding might be the way to go. That way when it
collapses, all the ribs pack close together.
||It seems like a standard stretcher configuration will have
the upper hand in terms of size and weight (assuming
similar design optimization), but your design has other
||I can't commend the stretching of a hangover. Time is
already dilated during hangover events.
