Frequent lifting and carrying of patients result in high cumulative loads on the back. These facts indicate that patient transport is the major cause of this problem. That’s why ergonomic improvements to transport aids are needed to improve the health and well-being of paramedics.
The S-CAPEPLUS – Inflatable Mattress is designed to smoothen the process of medical evacuation and reduce the physical strain for paramedics. It also provides much more patient comfort compared to vacuum mats or spine boards and prevents the development of pressure ulcers (decubitus) during stabilization. The bottom side of this S-CAPEPLUS – Inflatable Mattress is also equipped with the world’s strongest fibre.
The S-CAPEPLUS – Inflatable Mattress consists of four different parts: Air Mattress, S-CAPEPLUS Cover, Storage Bag, Feet Board & Dual Action Hand Pump. Head blocks can be attached to the Inflatable Model to stabilize the head and neck.
