Ornge, Ontario’s air ambulance operator, has completed the installation of a new powered stretcher system across its fleet of 11 Leonardo AW139s.

The Powered Aero Loader (known as PAL,) produced by Australian company HeliMods, is a push-button operated powered stretcher loader system that allows crews to quickly and easily load and unload road ambulance stretchers into and from helicopter air ambulances.

The system is compatible with the popular Stryker Power Pro XT stretcher system, which is used by the vast majority of road ambulances across Ontario. According to HeliMods, the system allows for the transfer of patients weighing up to 700 pounds (318 kilograms) without the need for any manual lifting, achieved with the push of a button.
