CMC’s Helitack HotSeat provides rapid patient transport for helicopter short hauls and hoists where a litter is not required.
Classified as a Class III Extrication Device, the HotSeat secures the subject in a stable, semi-seated position, without needing to place them in a harness. Quick to deploy and don, the HotSeat goes on like a jacket. A streamlined closure system allows a single carabiner to connect all three attachment points including the center web loop and the 2 proof-loaded steel rings that are easy to handle and clip.
There are no complicated buckles or adjusters. Grab handles assist the patient in maintaining an upright body position and keeps their hands away from the haul line. Two highly visible yellow handles provide leverage and control when loading and unloading the subject. Tagline attachment loops allow ground crews to control and guide the subject.
Inside the HotSeat is a stowable secondary restraint system for smaller subjects, featuring quick-connect Cobra Buckles for easy deployment. Constructed from heavy duty 1,000 denier nylon with reflective accents that also glow in the dark, the HotSeat is built to perform in harsh environments. The included compression bag stows the HotSeat in a compact size and has additional space for the subject’s helmet and personal items.
Simple to use, quick to deploy, and easy to stow, the HotSeat earns its place on board for the most demanding helicopter rescue missions.
