Skedco® manufactures and markets State of the art Confined Space Rescue equipment including the original Sked® stretcher – the perfect solution for confined space, high angle and technical rescue. The revolutionary design provides outstanding patient protection and security during helicopter hoisting.
Sked Stretcher is still the state of the art device for virtually all rescues. It is currently being used for confined space, water, military, vertical rope, low angle, wilderness and many others kinds of rescue.

When using Sked in the water, patients can be packaged in 20 seconds.
Sked can be hoisted by helicopter. Skedco produces the tagline to prevent litter spin under the helicopter.
