Lightweight patient transport unit developed


August 11, 2017 – Spectrum Aeromed has completed production on its 3200 Series Carbon Fiber patient transport unit (PTU), a fully carbon fiber unit that can turn VIP aircraft into emergency air ambulances for medical transport. The unit can be quickly attached into standard aircraft seat tracks, with fast conversion times enabled where the unit is not installed permanently. Equipment pull-outs, storage drawers, an integrated or movable stretcher, and a wide range of medical devices can be customized to uit mission profiles.

“Apart from the advantage of higher solidity at a lower system weight, the beauty of this new PTU is that it very nicely fits into the contour and appearance of a modern design of aircraft interior. Plain surfaces ensure easy cleaning/disinfection and the open overhead structure allows changes in various medical devices for future system upgrades.”
