Retmex Rescue Sheet

The Rescue Sheet is designed to make it easier to effectively transfer patients with minimal effort. Designed for rescue services, trauma teams and first aid teams.

Ready for rough terrain

Whether responding to a forest, national park, or another rough area, the Carry Sheet allows rescue workers to safely and quickly carry patients out of the area without any bumps along the way.

Compact storage

Use the attached carabiner to securely clip the Carry Sheet to your clothing for easy transport.

The Rescue Sheet is ready to go wherever you are. By rolling the Rescue Sheet, you can carry it in your first aid kit or rescue bag and quickly unroll it in the event of an emergency.

Use it on your one when every second counts

There’s always a chance that you need to use the Retmex by yourself if there’s no one around to assist you. Webbing placed on the body zone makes sure that you can also use the Retmex Rescue Sheet for sliding when that additional help isn’t available.

  • Why are the yellow straps on the lying side of the rescue sheet?

    There’s always a chance that you need to use the Retmex by yourself if there’s no one around to assist you. If that’s the case, you will need to slide the victim instead of lifting. This can occur in critical emergencies. Therefore, we’ve decided to place the yellow straps on the lying side. If the straps would have been on the outside, this would have created an obstacle for sliding. 

  • Can you give an example how you would use the Retmex?

    An athlete is injured during a sports event. You can then use the rescue sheet to transfer this person to an emergency room. It is a handy and compact alternative to a stretcher or scoop.
