Aug 30, 2018Respond to Injured Athletes Without Impacting the Playing Surface
Based on KIMTEK Corporation’s recent sales figures, schools and universities nationwide are selecting the company’s MEDLITE(R) Transport skid units for on-field medical transport at a growing rate. Providing athletic departments and school boards with an affordable, professional patient transport solution at football, soccer, and track and field events, KIMTEK’s MEDLITE transport system features a modular UTV side-by-side medical unit effective for first response at sports fields in elementary schools, high schools, and university stadiums of all sizes.
EMTs and athletic directors prefer the smaller, lighter UTV side-by-side unit for its ability to reach an injured player on the field with proper equipment and its capacity to quickly, efficiently transport a patient off the field to a waiting ambulance. Unlike a large ambulance, the compact MEDLITE system reaches a patient without harming natural grass or artificial turf, permitting sports play to resume and protecting school property.
Available in 2018 are four models and price ranges to fit even limited school budgets, the MEDLITE units are universal by design, installing easily into most UTV side-by-side vehicles already owned by school systems or readily available for purchase locally. The MEDLITE Transport models MTB-101, MTS-102 and MTD-103 carry a long board and stokes basket, and model MTSTR-104 also carries an ambulance style wheeled cot stretcher. The MTS-102 and MTD-103 models offer enclosed storage.
Originally developed for ambulance and rescue squads, fire departments, and U.S. Military, the MEDLITE Transport series are the best-selling off-road rescue units in the world with over 4300 units in service. KIMTEK personnel have vast experience integrating MEDLITE Transport units into any school’s athletic program to protect both players and property.
