The TRECK is an emergency cutting tool, specifically designed to simultaneously remove multiple layers of clothing, equipment and other obstructions from a trauma patient. Many Firefighters, EMT’s, and Paramedics know that shears and scissors slow down the process and don’t always very well on a convulsing or moving patient. In an emergency time is of the essence. Also there is risk involved as shears move closer to the patients body. The TRECK is designed specifically to move away from the patient, thus preventing enabling the user to access any wounds with haste.
