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.

    Also works like gravity inversion boots for that nagging back ache.

    Lt. Francois demonstrates “the WRONG way” to use the stretcher.
