Additional Information

AmbuBus® Compatible
The AmbuCarrier’s lightweight design makes it easy for first responders to lift patients into the AmbuBus, where the AmbuCarrier can maneuverer through the stretcher frames directly to the patient’s designated stretcher.

AmbuRamp Compatible
When used with the AmbuRamp, the AmbuCarrier can be wheeled into any emergency trasnport vehicle like the AmbuBus, or an elevated transport station. The AmbuRamp provides a gradual incline for the AmbuCarrier, which minimizes lifting required by the operator(s) and helps reduce stress on first responders.

Adjustable Height
The AmbuCarrier frame adjusts in increments of 1 inch, for up to 4 inches of height adjustment. This allows for the AmbuCarrier to accomodate to the preferred comfort of the operator(s).

AmbuStretcher Compatible
The AmbuCarrier is compatible with most backboards (16” - 20”) as well as the AmbuStretcher, allowing patients to remain strapped in the AmbuStretcher when transferred by the AmbuCarrier to the AmbuBus, emergency transport vehicle, triage area, or medical facility.
