A QUANTUM LEAP IN PATIENT
MANAGEMENT AND EMS/AMBULANCE
FLEET INTEROPERABILITY

Introducing the Patent pending Helimods Powered Aero Loader (PAL)

The PAL™ is a zero-lift, push-button operated powered stretcher loader system for rapid loading and unloading of road ambulance stretchers into HEMS aircraft.

For some time now Emergency Medical Services (EMS) have been looking for a way to standardise patient transfer between ground based services such as Ambulances and Hospitals to Helicopter-based emergency medical services (HEMS). This capability has never before been available until now!

PAL – ZERO LIFT,
PUSH-BUTTON OPERATED POWERED
STRETCHER LOADER SYSTEM

The ultimate no-compromise solution

Interfacing with the market leading Stryker Power Pro XT™ stretcher system the PAL™ provides Road Ambulance or Hospital Transfer to HEMS aircraft fleets and eliminates any compromise between patient care and risk of paramedic injury by easily transporting a patient weighing up to 318kg (700lbs).

In an international HEMS first the patient can be loaded from an Ambulance or Hospital Helipad onto an awaiting HEMS aircraft in 18 seconds by one operator at the push of a button without the need to transfer to a specialised Aeromedical stretcher.

PAL – ELIMINATES ANY COMPROMISE

PAL Advantages

  • Typical loading and unloading times of less than 30 seconds are achievable by only one paramedic at the push of a button
  • Capable of supporting both stretcher and up to 318kgs (700lbs) including patient and equipment.
  • Eliminating patient stretcher transfer, improves “Golden Hour” response time
  • Significant increase in patient care through elimination of transferring from ambulance stretcher to HEMS specific stretcher
  • Dramatic decrease in risk of paramedic injury due to spinal compression and shear forces, leading to reduced compensation claims
  • Reduced training doctrine due to industry equipment commonality
  • Can be easily installed on a variety of existing common floor types

PAL Installation

Installation of the PAL™ is very easy as it has been designed to be integrated onto a variety of OEM and aftermarket helicopter cabin floors without any major structural modifications or significant decrease in aircraft performance.

PAL™ can either be installed as a standalone unit or in conjunction with other certified Helimods™ EMS accessories.
