Comfort and Protection When Every Second Counts

Emergency medical services (EMS), also known as ambulance services, are emergency services that utilize emergency medical technicians (EMTs) to provide urgent pre-hospital treatment, stabilization and transportation for individuals who are seriously ill or injured. As part of the job, they utilize a host of portable advanced medical equipment such as oxygen, defibrillators, suction devices, patient transporters and of course stretchers.

Reduce Changeover Time

Reduce the spread of infection and protect the mattresses from harsh disinfecting agents that eventually deteriorate the fabric with disposable stretcher sheets. Graham Medical® has a wide portfolio of innovative disposable fitted stretcher sheets and equipment covers in multiple material options that meet the unique needs of the EMS professional. Sized to provide total coverage and protection, many of Graham’s stretcher sheets are transfer weight rated enabling EMTs to lift patients and transfer them to another stretcher once they arrive at the hospital. They also offer quick deployment, minimize stretcher cleaning, and maintain a professional, clean appearance.

PocketFit® - Fits standard stretchers and gurneys, available in fluid-resistant material and contains sewn pockets (not elastic) that allow the sheet to slip on and off quickly and easily. Transfer weight is rated from 200-250Lbs.

PowerFit® - Fits standard stretchers and beds, available in fluid-resistant and fluid-barrier materials and contains latex-free elastic corners that create and easy and secure fit. Transfer weight is rated from 200-400Lbs.

SnugFit® - Fits standard and large stretchers and gurneys, available in fluid-resistant and fluid-barrier materials and the latex-free elastic fitted design keeps sheet tight and flat to prevent slippage during patient movement. Transfer weight is rated from 250-300Lbs.
