Abstract

The paramedic team of Advanced Medical and Dental Institute (IPPT), Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) is often involved in providing medical assistance for various activities organised by the university such as during PIMPIN siswa outdoor training and sport events. Paramedics often faced difficulty in saving injured patients as the current stretcher is rather heavy (5.8 kg) and is not able to be folded to a smaller size. To overcome this problem, i-TAG, a stretcher made of durable two-layer canvas cloth with the size of 170.0 cm x 74.0 cm and equipped with 10 user-friendly rubber handle, has been invented. The upper part of the stretcher has a zip to insert the spinal board if the victim has spinal and head injuries. The i-TAG is also very light with only 1.2 kg in weight, easy to be folded and stored in emergency bags, and can be easily carried by paramedics. The i-TAG innovative product has a positive impact on health and safety services. Using i-TAG, the task to carry patients or injured victims becomes easier, faster, saves energy and subsequently increases the efficacy of the rescue and medical aid tasks by paramedics.
