The ERGON was designed and developed by first responders to offer outstanding performance never achieved before. ERGON guarantees maximum patient comfort thanks to a special soft material molded on a high resistance plastic polymer.
Besides patient comfort, ERGON is designed to assist first responders thanks to it's unique features. The handles are lined with HC3 and are inclined of 20 degrees to allow the best grip. Special eyelets and pins have been positioned along the handles to easily fix snap hooks straps. The distance between the two halves is just 25mm. This enables a perfect containment of the spinal column compared to normal scoop stretchers which are separated by 80mm. The shape of the blade is therefore larger and has been designed to be easily and gradually placed between the patient and the ground. The use of HC3 material allows for an overall structural stability and also allows high thermal insulation. This helps to prevent hypothermia and, thanks to the stretcher design, enablea an extended the stay of the patient on the device.
A further technological revolution is the use of the Flexilock (patent pending) articulated locking device which enables both to separate the stretcher in two halves and to rescue in unnatural positions and tough situations. Then, besides the standard rescue techniques, ERGON enables to easily carry out rescuing operations in difficult and uncomfortable places even when the patient is in critical conditions.
