  Easy Rescue Buddy

Easy Rescue BUDDY is a light-weight and hands-free evacuation harness. It is currently used for evacuating battle-wounded soldiers, and to carry injured civilians down stairways and out of buildings after a disaster. BUDDY is also effective in transporting elderly, disabled and handicapped people from areas in which gurneys and other transportation devices cannot be utilized.

BUDDY’S unique design can improve and make more efficient any evacuation and rescue effort while keeping hands free, which is particularly useful on the battlefield. Carrying a stretcher in a combat zone can require up to four soldiers. BUDDY needs only two. The War-fighter can now respond to threats using their weapons while carrying a wounded solider to a secure area.
Only approx. 1 kilogram in weight, BUDDY folds to a size smaller than a loaf of bread, when not in use and can be easily carried in the vest or backpack.  This is one of the reasons why the Israeli Home Front Command chose Easy Rescue BUDDY and BUDDY PRO as mass evacuation solutions in disasters.
