Sikorsky has introduced a new interior for emergency medical services (EMS) on the S-76 medium twin. The new interior incorporates a so-called “articulating patient loading system” that reduces the workload for the team carrying a patient on a stretcher. In addition, the system prevents patient back strain. The new litter base opens the cabin floor for more storage and allows multiple litter positioning. It provides a lowered platform to perform cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. Finally, it offers multiple options to mount customer-specific gear. To design the new interior, the manufacturer’s engineering division in Coatesville, Pa., teamed with EMS operator Air Methods.
