Casualty Evacuation Like No Other – Check out the Recovery Handle
Spiritus Systems teamed up with the guys at Direct Action Resource Center to bring you a system which helps you out in those critical situations when you have to carry a casualty out of a hot zone. Read below about the features the Recovery Handle has to offer.
The Recovery Handle™ sets the standard for emergency casualty evacuation and recovery in non-permissive environments. The system provides a reliable and repeatable method for dragging a casualty off of the “X” or away from the objective. Unlink other drag handle systems it transfers the force of the evacuation to the hips of the casualty.
This prevents the plate carrier from striking them in face, or cutting off their airway. Because the strap deploys to a greater length it allows the operator performing the evacuation to stand straight up which prevents fatigue and helps maintain situational awareness.
The Recovery Handle™ mounts directly to your MOLLE compatible vest and can be deployed in seconds with a quick pull of the handle. The Recovery Handle™ internally retains the excess webbing that would normally be tucked into your MOLLE loops, giving you a clean and snag free solution.
