Hi Folks.... I was wondering if anyone was aware of an EC 130 utilizing a wheeled patient stretcher. My organization is debating between an AStar and the EC, and we more or less consider a stretcher with wheels mandatory (we're almost 100% interfacility). We're pretty sure there is no such thing as rolling stretcher for the AStar, but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks!! Posted Image

No stretcher for either the 130 or AStar right now....., but it's in the works, (not sure it's gonna be a good choice vs a litter)

If it's mandatory that you need your own stretcher, than the EC135 or 145 is your only choice.

You may be able to find a BK117, but they are being replaced.

Thanks all for the replies..... I have some EC-135 experience and we had the ferno cot... Didn't suspect the 130 could fit one but needed to make sure. I may give Spectrum a call but I'm not holding my breath. Thanks again!

Hey, I work for Baptist Lifeflight in Alabama, there is a rolling cot for EC-130. We have 2 new 130's being completed in Denver now. Air Methods has designed a cot for each of our new aircraft. If needed I can e-mail pictures. One of our aircraft will be on display at the aams conference in Florida. Feel free to e-mail for more info if needed. Keith

Our program had the EC 130 stretcher and I can tell you that it was a total disaster. We switched back to the litter system and it was the best thing that we have ever done for our program. The stretcher system on the EC 130 is an engineering disaster.
