Title
Ambulance Litter Integrity, Retention, and Patient Restraint
Scope
This SAE Recommended Practice describes the testing procedures required to evaluate the integrity of a ground ambulance-based patient litter, litter retention system, and patient restraint when exposed to a frontal or side impact. Its purpose is to provide litter manufacturers, ambulance builders, and end-users with testing procedures and, where appropriate, acceptance criteria that, to a great extent ensures the patient litter, litter retention system, and patient restraint, meet the same performance criteria as is applied to a civilian vehicle’s seating and occupant restraint system. Descriptions of the test set-up, test instrumentation, photographic/video coverage, text fixture, and performance metrics are included.
