Profile: Skedco, Inc. specializes in the design, development and production of medical & rescue products. We provide portable, backpack-type emergency stretcher for aerial, vertical, water and confined space rescue. Our product line includes basic stretcher system, flotation system, complete rescue system, rapid deployment water rescue system and accessory rescue products. Our Sked® stretcher is a revolutionary design which provides outstanding patient protection and security. In our Sked® basic rescue system the durable plastic provides protection for the patient while allowing extrication through the most demanding confined spaces. The stretcher is rolled for storage in a tough corduroy backpack which is included with the system. Our flotation system maintains the Sked® in a nearly vertical position in the water. It is self-righting and keeps the patients' head completely out of water, even in rough seas. The side floats and chest pad provide buoyancy sufficient to support two rescuers in the water in addition to the patient, while the lead shot filled ballast keeps the foot end down and the head elevated out of the water.

The company was founded in 1981, has revenues of USD 1-5 Million and is CE certified.
