Value Proposition: Currently, the primary rescuing device on the battlefield is the battlefield stretcher. This requires two rescuers, limits carrying ability over rough terrain, timely positioning of patient and increased targetable profile. The Extricator allows a single rescuer to effect the same rescue with a significantly reduced profile, a quicker loading of the patient and considerably increased speed of movement after loading the patient.
