The SB Forensic Recovery system is a complete solution to retrieving a body whilst retaining vital forensic evidence 



Developed with the assistance of Strathclyde Police, the SB Forensic Body Recovery System is a complete body retrieval unit that is designed for recovering a casualty without the rescuer having to enter the water. The unit can be easily used from a boat or a steep-sided canal / lake or where there is a distance recovery. The unit has an overall length of 5.2m when extended and can be operated by one person whilst weighing only 3 Kg.

The forensic bag allows water to pass through whilst its fine mesh structure retains vital forensic evidence, it also provides the added benefit of removing the recovered object from site quickly, reducing stress to onlookers and the rescurers themselves

The frame and the harness also feature the ASSpect label system which enables users to scan the labels from a compatible phone via the app to reveal inspection dates, date of first use, serial numbers and more.
