The device metal framework attaches to evacuation litters and holds individual pieces of medical equipment needed for optimal patient transport. The Special Medical Emergency Evacuation Device (SMEED) stabilizes a variety of medical devices, such as ventilators and oxygen cylinders, replacing the traditional method of attaching such equipment directly to the transported patient.

Lightweight and adjustable, the 14-inch by 22-inch SMEED adapts for use in any Department of Defense medical vehicle. The critical care platform was specifically created to lessen the discomfort of burn victims during medical transport. Enthusiastic responses from those testing the SMEED prototype were convinced that the creation had greater lifesaving potential through technology transfer.

The Army physical therapist refined his design through several prototypes, while searching for development funding that ultimately came from the U.S. Army Medical Materiel Development Activity. The Army subsequently patented the device and in 2002 awarded a Small Business Innovation Research contract and exclusive license agreement to Impact Instrumentation, Inc. of New Jersey.
