Useful Information

The FRC kit consists of a Jason’s Cradle® with stowage bag and a fixing kit for both sides of the vessel. Fixings options available for RIBS (hypalon D-ring patches) or for hard hull (pad eyes.) In deployment the Jason’s Cradle forms a non-collapsible scoop.

The casualty is guided into the unit and is retrieved by rolling up and onto the craft in the medically preferred horizontal position. The rigid construction and special design give the operator a mechanical advantage during the lift.
