Rugged Litter with Thermal Protection

APLS Rigid Thermal Guard is a lightweight portable litter that provides the structural benefits of a traditional military litter and improves the evacuation and transportation of injured personnel, particularly in remote, rugged locations.  Weighing half of a traditional NATO litter, the expandable infrastructure and highly absorbent cellulose core form a truly unique, state-of-the-art litter system.

The absorbent core contains and controls blood and bodily fluids and a treated nylon backing protects against wind and moisture, thus increasing patient comfort while reducing the risk of cross contamination.  Delivered as a compact 19” x 14” x 4” package, APLS Rigid Thermal Guard can be easily carried into the battlefield where it can expand quickly into a full-size rigid litter.  For additional thermal protection, the APLS Rigid Thermal Guard features a Mylar lining that holds in heat and protects the patient against hypothermia during transport and care.
