Retmex® Rescue Sheet

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

Ready for rough terrains

With 12 secure carrying handles, multiple rescue responders can effortlessly balance and carry a patient from the scene quickly. The patient’s weight is evenly distributed across the sheet allowing for minimal disruption even over rough terrain.

Can also be used by 1 person in real emergencies

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 additional help isn’t available. 


Cleaning in 1, 2, 3.

Is it time to clean your Retmex? No problem, you can clean it with a wipe and disinfectant or place it in the washing machine. We recommend cleaning each time you've used it.

Designed in The Netherlands

Retmex Rescue Sheets are designed by Tetcon to reduce physical strain for first responders and to provide more comfort to victims.

Fire retardant technique

This Retmex is equipped with a fire-retardant technology. It's been tested successfully on fire standard EN597-01 and EN597-02.

Details that matter


Cross boxes add additional power and strength to points that would be fragile without.


PVC handles are enforced with textile threads and thus create extra grip and strength.


The strap system has been constructed in such a way that it ensures that the victim's weight is carried by the straps, not the fabric.


The Retmex Comfort comes standard in a small portable bag.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When do you use the Retmex?

    The Retmex can be used when you need to rescue a victim from a forest, national park, dunes or other difficult terrain. It is also used to transfer victims to and from the stretcher. This can be quite a challenge, especially when you are dealing with larger-sized people. With the Retmex you make it just a little easier.

  • Who's using the Retmex?

    Retmex is used by paramedics, first aid teams, firefighters, rescue teams and anyone who has to deal with accidents or crisis situations. It is also used in healthcare institutions to move people from A to B or it serves as an evacuation aid during an emergency evacuation.

  • With how many people do you use the Retmex?

    You normally operate a rescue sheet with 4 people. The weight of the victim will determine how many hands are needed to transfer the victim. There are 12 handles on this Retmex, so you can easily balance with multiple responders.

  • What's the safe working load of the Retmex?

    The safe working load of the Retmex Comfort is 250 kg. There is also a wider version available that can be loaded up to 385 kg. This is the Bariatric Retmex.

  • Why are the yellow strap 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. 

  • How is the rescue sheet packed?
