Westmore, Vermont, January 17, 2010 –– Kimtek Corporation has introduced the affordable MEDLITE™ Transport Basic (MTB-10) emergency medical rescue slide-in skid unit for UTV vehicles. Designed by firefighters and emergency medical technicians for use by all public safety agencies, the MEDLITE™ Transport Basic is designed to carry one patient on a long board or a stokes basket and one EMS attendant. The MTB-10’s universal design fits most UTV 4×4 and 6×6 vehicles such as the Polaris Ranger, Kubota RTV900, Kawasaki Mule, John Deere Gator and other off road vehicles.
Safety and patient comfort are key during off road rescues. Built for rough terrain and all weather use, the MTB-10 is made of rugged rust-proof aluminum. This emergency rescue skid unit is designed to quickly turn any UTV vehicle into a “mini ambulance.” A long board or stokes basket (not included) can be easily attached to the unit using 10 Velcro D-loop straps which are included. The attendant’s seat with seat belt is mounted in a fixed position. The MTB-10 comes with an adjustable end point so the unit can accept a long board or the larger stokes basket.
Whether using the unit for medical rescue or to transport a third passenger during search and rescue operations, the MEDLITE™ Transport MTB-10 slide-in skid unit will meet the needs and budget for all public safety agencies.
