The Xtraction Mode Conversion Kit bridges the gap between Care Under Fire (CUF) and Tactical Field Care (TFC). In dynamic threat level situations, the Conversion Harness fills the void by enabling individual emergency responders to quickly and effectively extract casualties from a threat environment to a litter or critical care area without the need for additional personnel, equipment or a dedicated litter team. It provides mechanical leverage for the rescuer through webbing wrapped around the victim’s upper body cavity that transfers the victim’s body weight into the rescuer’s core area for hands free extraction.
The Conversion Harness incorporates the extraction capability of Tactical Harnesses into an NFPA Level II rappel seat that can also be worn as a padded rescue belt.
The Conversion Harness can be worn one of two ways:
(1) Padded Rescue / Extraction Belt with leg straps and extraction harness secured in a pouch to the user’s back.
(2) Rappel Seat with Leg Straps Extended and extraction harness secured in a pouch to the user’s front.
The design allows the wearer to ride comfortably in a vehicle while fully rigged. The Conversion Harness provides emergency responders the leverage to evacuate any individual, regardless of their mission or operational equipment load out: EOD, heavy breacher, wearing CBRN with SCBA, etc.
