Flight crews and travelers have known the benefits of rollers on luggage for years; it was only a matter of time untilÜEMS got on board. Sure, rollers are usually designed for smooth surfaces, but the new ALS Ultra Roller from Thomas EMS features wheels and handles that allowÜEMS personnel to carry it on the long or short axis, as well as rapidly deployable straps for use as a backpack. Now you can grab a handle to get the pack to the house, carry it easily on your back to climb up and down steps, and then use the roller function to bring it in to the hospital for restocking. Critical Care Transport crews are often looking for ways to manage their gear. The roller function on this bag allows accompanying hospital personnel to roll the bag behind the crew without having to worry about its weight.
