Why we fly
Base lifterWith incubators and stretchers weighing over 100 kilos, the base lifters ensure the safety of our patients as we load and unload them onto our Air Ambulance Planes.
VentilatorThe intensive-care ventilator helps patients breathe when they cannot do so themselves.
Zoll monitorThe frequently used ZOLL Cardiac Monitor continuously monitors a patient's heart rhythm. Most patients are attached to the Zoll Monitor and their vitals are tracked throughout the flight.
Stryker stretcherThis stretcher smoothly and safely transports patients in and out of the aircraft, with foldable legs and the ability to attach all necessary monitoring devices.
