By lifting a MOB vertically can cause a rapid drop in blood pressure, greatly increasing the chances of cardiac failure and neurological malfunctions, but the HypoHoist significantly reduces such risks – and the potential problems caused by the effects of immersion hypothermia – by maintaining the casualty in a constant horizontal position during and after recovery.
The main component of Hypo Hoist is its dual function cradle which can be used to either hoist and roll the MOB up the freeboard, level with the deck and back on to the craft, or to operate as a boarding ladder with hand holds to allow quick and easy access back onto the vessel.
