When deployed, the Jason's cradle forms a non-collapsable scoop. The casualty is guided into the unit and is retrieved by rolling up and onto the craft in the medically preferred horizontal position. The rigid construction and special design give the operator a 2 to 1 mechanical advantage during the lift.
