Chinook Medical Gear and ARC Products Awarded NSN

This month, Chinook is proud to continue its partnership with evacuation solutions manufacturer, ARC Products. Both companies are pleased to announce the innovative and highly acclaimed, MedSled® Vertical Lift Rescue Sled (VLR), has been issued National Stock Number (NSN) 6530-01-608-3195 by the Defense Logistics Agency.

For those not ‘in the know’ of government acronyms, NSN products are officially recognized by the United States Government and Department of Defense, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and many governments around the world. This 13-digit numerical code is used to identify and monitor standardized parts and supplies for both civilian and military operations alike.

Chinook and ARC were recently awarded the joint NSN after a collaborative effort to ensure the MedSled VLR ensures superior performance and meets all criteria as per the Defense Logistics Agency

Launched in 2010, the MedSled VLR has been hailed as the most innovative extraction device of its kind for more efficient transport of injured individuals in hostile environments, saving crucial time during life or death situations. Designed specifically for military rescue applications requiring vertical or horizontal lift operations, the MedSled VLR provides the same functionality of conventional CASEVAC/Tactical Evacuation Care methods with significantly improved performance and durability.

The MedSled rescue sled comes fully pre-assembled with an integrated hoist system for deployment of evacuees in just 60-seconds – compared to 10 minutes as with previous models. Compact, lightweight and durable, the MedSled VLR is fully equipped with a rapid deployment bag designed for quick and safe transport in difficult or hostile situations.
