The HotSeat is designed for rapidly transporting a subject during helicopter short-hauling or hoisting. Quick-donning and built to last, the HotSeat expedites rescues by securing the subject in a stable, semi-seated orientation without needing to place them in a harness. It easily adjusts to fit small juvenile patients or larger persons up to 227 kg (500 lb). The included compression bag stores the HotSeat in a compact size. The bag can be attached to the HotSeat for carrying a helmet for the subject and stowing their personal items. Improvements to the HotSeat include a second support handle for more leverage and control, tagline attachment loops, a streamlined closure system, and illustrated instructions.
Not intended for a patient with a spinal injury or injuries that require a litter evacuation.
