A Spine board is an essential piece of rescue kit for all water facilities. This one is made by Ferno (world leading manufacturers of emergency medical equipment for hospitals and emergency services) and was designed in collaboration with RLSS UK.
The spine board provides quick, safe and easy means of recovering a casualty with suspected spinal injuries from the swimming pool to poolside without risk of slipping.
Comes with bracket to mount on wall.
The Aquaboard serves to immobilise a casualty within the water, helping to prevent secondary injury to the spinal cord prior to recovery on the poolside. Incorporating several innovative features, the Aquaboard is quick and simple to apply and is effective for aquatic rescue. The durable back support, manufactured from hard wearing neoprene material, easily attaches to the board by means of velcro strapping. The non-slip base of the back support helps prevent the casualty from moving once strapped to the board. For ease of use, four basic stages of application are clearly illustrated on this support which allows the patient to be accurately positioned for optimum stability
The Aquaboard includes the following unique features:-
5 Body and Leg Straps with colour coded buckles for ease of identification and accurate application
Lightweight Head Restraint with three retaining straps
Fully Adjustable to accommodate various casualty sizes from child through to adult
A concave design for easy positioning under the supported casualty
A convex underside with protected straps and built in runners to facilitate a smooth manoeuvre
Multiple hand holds enable easy carrying without jeopardising the rigidity of the board
A special design feature helps the board float up and under the casualty
As the board is X-Ray Translucent, the patient can remain on the board throughout X-Ray procedures
