We are pleased to offer the Skedco line of evacuation sleds. The original—and still the best—rescue stretcher, the Sked is made from a proprietary formula of E-Z glide polyethylene plastic. In trials, it has proven to be tough enough to withstand being run over by a 56-ton tank and then used afterward to drag a soldier around a military base for 10 miles over extremely rough terrain.

What does “SKED” stand for?
Though we spell it with capital letters, SKED is not an acronym. It came from fusing two words: “Sled” and “Skid”. The early idea behind the product was that it was a SLED that SKIDDED across all types of terrain. Initially, the SKED was used as a game carrier to tote wild game back to a hunter’s camp. It has since morphed into the life-saving device that’s used today across the globe. Like many iconic products that are the first of its kind in the market, the brand has come to epitomize the thing itself. The original SKED. First and still the best.
