The spider belt, which is frequently used in ambulances and first aid rescue operations, has a body length of at least 125 cm. There are at least six side belts on the belt’s central axis and V-fasteners on the head. By means of these, the patient can be fixed to the stretcher on both shoulders, and with other belts, the injured can be fixed to the stretcher by gripping at the level of the abdomen, hip, upper and lower legs. During this process, the spider belt can move toward the desired point on the patient with other belts on the main axis. If desired, these belts can be immobilized on the spider belt’s main shaft. Belt columns are produced in colors that comply with European standards. Spider arch column widths are manufactured at least 5 cm thick.
