Stretchers are medical transport devices that have been used since ancient times to move casualties or injured people from one place to another. It is a simple type of litter and, in some cases, still referred to by that name. Though difficult to pinpoint exactly who invented the stretcher, or when it was first used, it is known that the use of stretchers were widely used on battlefields and in emergency situations, where rough terrain hindered travel by wheeled vehicles. Stretchers have always served to protect a person from further injury during transportation as well as to ease the burden on the people carrying the stretcher itself, as opposed to carrying the injured person without assistance at all.
