Designed for over and in-water rescue missions. Each kit provides flotation and patient restraint for the Medevac II series and other Stokes-type litters. Components of each kit are constructed from high quality synthetic materials, and are suitable for the marine environment. When properly installed, the kits provide positive self-righting and head-up flotation characteristics. Covers for flotation components are international orange, and are available in black by special order. Patient Restraint Straps (#140) sold separately.
LSC’s (103) Flotation Kit reduces the width of a litter with installed flotation by four inches. The narrow profile is accomplished with half-width, “D” shaped flotation logs and a foam back pad. Flotation tests have been conducted on LSC (404) and (406) Medevac II litters only (not for use with titanium models). Other litters will require testing prior to placement in service.
