The design is based on feedback from the operator community and will significantly increase the durability and usability of medical stretchers used onboard civilian, government, military, fire, police and aeromed helicopters, the company said.

The HEMS upgrade from Med-Pac provides operators with a rugged, lightweight and functional product that reduces maintenance and increases performance.

The first release of Med-Pac’s revolutionary EMS Lite HEMS system is for the Bell 505.

The EMS Lite HEMS system reduces weight, reduces maintenance due to lack of any cables or complex mechanisms, and requires only a simple replacement of the seat with no need for any electrical installation.


Med-Pac stretcher systems feature a carbon fiber deck, Kydex floor barrier, trauma and oxygen bags, a heavy-duty stretcher with a manual locking bracket and a single-hand release, which allows for simple handling inside the aircraft.

Med-Pac’s new EMS Lite design will soon be available for additional helicopter brands and models.

The EMS Lite design is the latest in Med-Pac’s family of stretchers, which offers customers a variety of options to meet their medical operations needs. Based in northwest Minnesota, the company has four decades of experience in the medical equipment manufacturing industry, developing products made to customers’ specifications.
