The LMT Pilot helmets is designed for flight crew members of civilian or military helicopters. They operate mainly on board and require head protection during certain flight phases. The particular shape and construction materials have made possible to minimize the weight and size of the helmet without renouncing any of the security features required for flight helmets. The reduced size and weight allows extended wear avoiding altering pilots’ sense of balance.
The LMT Tech helmet is designed for technician crew members who needs to operate on the ground. The particular shape grants the operator to remove one of the earcups, allowing contact with ground crew or any patient during rescue operations while maintaining permanent side impact protection (features required for flight helmets).
The LMT Medic helmet is designed for a medical or crew members use, for those who needs to operate also on the ground. The special shape grants the removal of one or both earcups allowing the use of tools like stethoscope, the contact with the ground crew or any patient during rescue operations, while maintaining the security features required for flight helmets or on the operational scenarios.
Emergency spine immobilization device that can be used in extrication or in combination with human external cargo harnesses for hoist or rope operations.
The Fluitans kit can be used to splint a trauma patient in deep water. The NEXT allows “extrication” maneuvers in confined spaces, ensuring quick immobilization of the patient’s spine in a neutral position.
NEXT can be configured in different ways and with different patient retention systems, allowing its use
as a “Utility Emergency Board”. Its small size, weight characteristics and immobilization capacity in every environment and situation make the versatility of NEXT “Xclusive”. In combination with the self-adjustable “rescue triangle” harness, it is very easy and quick to operate in every environment with gloves or heavy clothing.
Inflatable spinal support for stretchers or soft hoist ops devices.
The Pneuspine is a support device for trauma patients, compatible with “basket” stretchers or hoistable
soft devices that, together with the Pneuspine, can immobilize the patient in neutral alignment and/or allow a high buoyancy in the aquatic environment.
Ideal for rescue in rough environment or for search and rescue teams that can move a light and compact object, which allows a useful immobilization stiffness of patients up to 150 kg. (331 lb)
The inflating air or inert gas mixture is possible with different devices, more or less rapid, with the cylinder or with a pump / compressor.
Compostite Long Board designed to the immobilize a trauma patient.
The special shape and the reduced edge thickness (7 mm) allow to load the trauma patient minimizing the stresses in many environment.
The STILA system consists of:
– Compostie Long Board
– Quick Immobilization belts
– Northwall Q-Head or Helmet Immobilizer
Immobilization Device of trauma patients in backcountry or confined spaces.
Composite materials long board with the option to be quickly disassembled in 5 pieces of reduced size and weight.
The characteristics of the board allow to properly support and immobilize the spine and the main body metamers to maintain the neutral alignment of the trauma patient and to allow its moving.
In combination with special bags or “basket” litter allows to reach patients in confined spaces or hypogeus to pursue the recovery of patients in each place.
Composite materials board with a special shape that allows loading and evacuating a driver undergoing trauma from the race track in seconds.
A collaboration with race track medical services departments has given rise to a procedure and a set of tools dedicated to the quick evacuation of motorcycle riders who fall on the track.
The procedure was developed in order to evacuate riders undergoing trauma to a safe area in a reduced amount of time, making it possible to avoid preventive choices and ensure the ability to standardize operations and treatments by increasing the safety of the rescue operations.
The SkidBoard was built with particular solutions and materials that allow the patient to slide on the asphalt or surface of a race track and decrease the weight lifted by rescuers, limiting the possibility of falls and increasing the speed and safety of operations with an immobilized patient.
Rollable carry system
Basic Bag that allow to carry the patient on the Pneuspine , Sinctok or Stila along pathways using dedicated carry handles or dedicated shoulder belts.
The system allow to carry a ligthtest and compact litter ever.
With all the benefits of the Pneuspine long board, the Northwall Trail Bag can be the right solution for beckcountry rescue ops, medevac or escape operations.
Bag for lifting madical equipment.
Human cargo certified bag that allow the patient lifting with hoist, fix line or rope operations.
The system allow to lift and protect immobilized patient on a ligthtest and compact litter ever.
With all the benefits of the PNEUSPINE, SINCTOK or STILA long board, the Northwall HCB can be the right solution for beckcountry rescue ops, medevac, on rope operations, helicopter rescue operations etc.
