Why are the yellow straps on the lying side of the rescue sheet?

Answer: There’s always a chance that you need to use the Retmex by yourself if there’s no one around to assist you. If that’s the case, you will need to slide the victim instead of lifting. This can occur in critical emergencies. Therefore, we’ve decided to place the yellow straps on the lying side. If the straps would have been on the outside, this would have created an obstacle for sliding.

Can you give an example how you would use the Retmex?

Answer: An athlete is injured during a sports event. You can then use the rescue sheet to transfer this person to an emergency room. It is a handy and compact alternative to a stretcher or scoop.
