New Airplane Stretcher Holds Patient Securely (Oct, 1937)
New Airplane Stretcher Holds Patient Securely
Designed primarily for use in airplanes, a new hospital stretcher is equipped with straps so placed that a wounded occupant cannot accidentally fall out while a plane is banking, diving, or going through other maneuvers. The photograph above shows a French soldier, fastened into the stretcher, with his head toward the ground. The straps over his shoulders and across the insteps of his feet keep him from falling.
