Ferno Traverse Titan Basket Stretcher

Ferno Traverse Titan Basket Stretcher (Stainless Steel and Titanium)

These stretchers are a revamp of the classic Stokes military style stretchers.

The top rail is a full 2.5 cm making the stretcher easier to handle over extended periods.

The Traverse Titan Stainless Steel Basket Stretcher is reinforced with double stainless steel tubing at the head and foot ends for extra strength during vertical raises and lowers.
