UTV equipment provides efficient on-field medical transport for sports programs
The MEDLITE transport skid is a modular utility task vehicle (UTV) side-by-side medical unit. Athletic departments and schools use it for on-field medical transport. It is an affordable, professional patient transport solution for football, soccer, track and field, and other sports events. It is an effective solution for first response at sports fields in elementary schools, high schools, and university stadium of all sizes.
EMTs and athletic directors prefer the smaller, lighter UTV side-by-side unit for its ability to reach an injured player on the field with proper equipment and its capacity to quickly and efficiently transport a patient off the field to a waiting ambulance. Unlike a large ambulance, the compact MEDLITE system reaches a patient without harming natural grass or artificial turf, permitting sports play to resume and protecting school property. The manufacturer is KIMTEK Corp.
Options, universal fit appeal to school districts
Available in four models and price ranges to fit even limited school budgets, the MEDLITE units are universal by design, installing easily into most UTV side-by-side vehicles already owned by school systems or readily available for purchase locally. The MEDLITE Transport models MTB-101, MTS-102 and MTD-103 carry a long board and stokes basket. Model MTSTR-104 also carries an ambulance-style wheeled cot stretcher. The MTS-102 and MTD-103 models offer enclosed storage.
Originally developed for ambulance and rescue squads, fire departments, and U.S. military, the MEDLITE Transport series are widely used off-road rescue units. More than 3,500 units are in service. The manufacturer’s personnel have a lot of experience integrating MEDLITE Transport units into any school’s athletic program to protect both players and property.
