The Mercedes Sprinter is available as a type II or type III ambulance, offering the best driver visibility a chassis can provide. A sprinter is a type of chassis used on ambulances. Sprinters allow for better visibility (the windshield is larger) and spaciousness up front (most seat up to six people). Sprinters are used in emergencies where patients need maximum assistance. Some of the standard medical equipment on a Sprinter includes main and secondary folding stretchers, ceiling mounted IV hooks, electrical power outlets, and storage cabinets for medical equipment and supplies.
