6x slings attached to a stretcher (3 each side) via larksfoot hitch (Girth Hitch) enables stretcher bearers to take some of the weight of the stretcher and casualty off of the carrying arm/hand by bringing the sling up the back and over the shoulder (shoulder furthest away from the stretcher) and holding the sling in the non carrying hand. A figure eight stopper knot enables a more secure grip on the sling by the non carrying hand. This way of carrying a stretcher especially over rough/steep ground has to be experienced to fully appreciate the advantages. The stretcher/casualty load is partially carried high on the bearers shoulder rather than just by the carrying arm and hand.
