We have revolutionized extrication – the SWANGARD rescue-jacket from S-GARD.
Thanks to an innovative harness system, the SWANGARD rescue vest allows patients to be brought into a stable position without the assistance of rescuers. This increases patient safety and makes it much easier for rescuers to intervene.
