Introducing the all new Gen2 R-LIFT that maintains all the great features and ease of use of Gen1, but deceases weight and size, and increases abrasion resistance, strength and decontamination capabilities. The R-LIFT is a fully rigid litter that deploys in seconds, weighs only 6 lbs on its own and only 6.5 lbs with the carrying pack. It boasts a maximum load carrying capacity of 400 lbs. The litter is constructed from Ultra High-Density Polyethylene, offering extremely high abrasion resistance and strength, inability to absorb blood, pathogens, chemical or biological hazards, and still decrease weight and size. Additionally, the R-LIFT is now constructed entirely with Kevlar webbing and thread so no part of your stretcher will become contaminated beyond decontamination capabilities. The R-LIFT comes with a built-in inflatable air bladder designed to support the head and align the spine. Additionally, the R-LIFT comes with a replaceable integrated emergency blanket that can be deployed quickly to prevent hypothermia.
Lastly, the stretcher offers patient securing straps designed to keep the patient securely attached while moving over rough terrain.
Easy and fast to assemble with only 1 person; the R-LIFT is compact for easy storage and transport. The newly designed carrier allows for storage of the R-LIFT either disassembled or partially assembled and a three flap design for quick but secure packing while in the field.

At 6.5 feet long, the stretcher is long enough to accommodate all operators and has a maximum carrying capacity of 400 lbs for both the operator and his/her gear. The stretcher has 5 handles per side to give each team a multitude of configurations for carrying a downed man. When paired with the Combat Carbon Poles (sold separately), you get the lightest semi-rigid expedient medical litter/stretcher available at only 3.5 lbs total weight. Combat Carbon Poles found here.
Additionally, the litter collapses and zips together to form an essential multipurpose lightweight bag for operators to collect items such as Sensitive Site Exploitation (SSE) Material or gear from a downed man. The bag is augmented with a single adjustable strap for easy carry when loaded, a drawstring to secure the bag contents, and is small enough to fold up and be stored in a cargo pocket.
