Long before modern-day medical technologies were instituted, primitive forms of the medical gurney were used to convey injured or deceased soldiers from the battlefield and into areas of safety. Today's medical stretchers serve a vital purpose in the health care field: to safely and securely convey injured patients through hospitals, private practices, and clinics. Hospital stretchers are also used by emergency medical technicians to transport the critically injured into emergency rooms. Patients undergoing operative procedures are brought from operating rooms into recovery areas on transport stretchers.
