November 14, 2013 - MEDLITE® Transport skid units convert many large side by side UTVs into mini-ambulances. This allows for quicker response times in large crowd events, off-road and remote areas where large ambulance apparatus cannot reach. The MEDLITE, depending on model, is built to carry a patient on a long board, stokes basket, wheeled cot, or stretcher. This means medical technicians are able to use these vehicles to respond to patients with more ease and deliver them to safety without harm to their own bodies in the process.
Being personally involved in the horse world for over fifteen years, has given me the opportunity to both witness and experience tragic falls and accidents when riding or handling these equine partners. The power behind a 1,200 pound animal never ceases to amaze me. Needing quick and dependable medical transport off the trail or out of the show ring is an all too common need for horsemen and women around the world.
After being thrown from my trusty horse companion into a wooden fence at a lope around the show ring it became all too clear to me the need for KIMTEK MEDLITE® Transports at equine events and equine facilities. Having local Fire or EMS agencies on call with this reliable piece of equipment to help with injured riders on the trail or able to assist at horse shows for medical needs would be such a relief for so many riders. MEDLITE® Transports have also been purchased directly by big events such as the Kentucky Derby, San Antonio Livestock Show and Rodeo, Rebecca Farms' show jumping events, and many State and County Fairs across the country.
