Scoop Stretcher Review
The scoop stretcher is an instrument used for transferring injured patients to another room or to the operating room. It is particularly ideal for transporting casualties with potential spinal cord injuries. This instrument is especially designed for transferring severely injured victims from the back room to the operating room. The scoop is made up of four parts, namely the headrest, a lifting device, a handle and a stretcher mechanism.
The headrest is similar to a pillow. It is attached to the scoop stretcher by an adjustable strap. At the top of the stretcher is the lifting device which holds the head in place. This lifting device is fixed onto the headrest using either one or two screws. This lifting device consists of an extension rod. At the lower end of this extension rod is a seat which can be pushed back into place after the scoop stretcher has been successfully deployed. This device also contains a control mechanism which helps to elevate the stretcher in relation to the level of the patient to facilitate a secure lift and to avoid the risk of the scoop stretcher collapsing.
The scoop stretcher head is attached to an adjustable strap using one or more screws. The stretcher head is fixed directly using one or more screws. A support bar is fixed to the upper part of the headrest. The scoop stretcher head is extended across this support bar until it is level with the patient’s head.
On the other hand, the stretcher handle is attached to the scoop stretcher using one or more screws. The handle is fixed onto the stretcher using one or more screws. The scoop stretcher handle consists of a lever and a handle. At the lower end of the lever is a locking plate which prevents the lever from coming off the stretcher head. This locking plate is fixed into a bracket on the stretcher head.
The final part of the scoop stretcher is the stretching mechanism. This consists of an extension bar and a handle. This bar extends up and down onto the scoop stretcher head. The extension bar consists of two parts – the straight bar extension. The straight bar consists of a single extension rod connected to an adjustable strip.
The straight bar also contains the extension bar as well as a handle. At the end of this extension rod is the straight bar handle. This handle consists of a locking strip which prevents the scoop stretcher from coming off the headrest when it comes off the extension bar. The extension bar is also provided with a locking plate which helps to prevent it from coming off when the headrest falls off the headrest in the event of a vehicle crash or in the event of an accidental fall.
