Less is a stretcher which was designed by K8 in 2005. It follows the patient from the place of the accident and to the x-ray table. The stretcher is made according to European standard and fits on top of existing ambulance stretchers. The material gives no shadow during x-ray, CT or MR-examinations. Expanded polystyrene gives an extremely good thermal insulation from the elements, reducing the risk of hypothermia. The unique design of the stretcher makes it extremely strong whilst also giving good support and comfort for the patient. The Less stretcher is waterproof and easy to clean.
Less emergency stretcher is now used by Avinor, is in the UN storeage facility in Brindisi and is being sold to all Norwegian municipalities through Norwegian Air Ambulance. The main distributor in Norway is Mediq AS and Prometheus Medical Ltd is the UK distributor.
