Legacy - MOB Double Horizontal Lifting Strop
A double horizontal lifting strop, supplied with load test certificate. Both the body and leg strops are individually tested to 300 Kg by an independent specialist tester!
LEGACY STROP - DOUBLE HORIZONTAL MOB & TRAINING STROP
The Legacy strop is a double horizontal lifting strop with a SWL of 150 Kg. Both the body and leg strops are individually tested to 300 Kg by an independent specialist tester, and supplied with a Test Certificate.
Although primarily designed for 'Man OverBoard' rescues / MOB, the Legacy Strop can also be used in other situations where a casualty needs to be pulled or lifted eg from mud/quicksand or in suitable helicopter-lifting drills/simulations.
What is the Importance of the Horzitonal Lift?
Many deaths of immersion casualties occur immediately before, during or immediately following rescue, even among those who at the time of rescue give no indication that their condition is so serious. An immersion casualty must be rescued and handled with great care or their condition may worsen. Anyone who has been in the water should, if possible, be recovered in a horizontal mode and made to remain horizontal for at least half an hour.
Vertical rescue or allowing a recovered casualty to immediately sit or walk could be fatal. This is because the water pressure on the legs of an immersion casualty assists the blood circulation, so if they are rescued vertically the loss of water pressure combined with the gravitational pull tends to collect the blood in the legs, thus starving the heart and the rest of the body.
