MS-95202 Advanced Patient Mover
Product DetailsRescue situations frequently occur in locations where patients are difficult to reach, such as mountains, sheer cliffs, and dense forests. Frequently, the rescue is performed with a helicopter rescue crew whose specialty is mountain rescues. Sometimes, however, the only way to reach an injured individual is on foot, and in these situations, it’s difficult for rescue teams to reach an injured victim while also transporting all of the equipment they require.
For rescue situations where a traditional stretcher is too difficult to use for extrication, the Advanced Patient Mover from MedSource is the perfect solution for patient transport.
MedSource International Product Features
• Durable, non-woven material
• 1800 pound weight capacity
• Forty inches wide, eighty inches long
• Fourteen handles allow extra lifters
• Available as a single unit or pack of ten
The Advanced Patient Mover is constructed of heavy duty, non-woven material that has an impressive 1800 pound weight capacity. It has a length of eighty inches, and a width of forty inches. The non-woven material is impervious to fluids, and the fourteen handles allow for rescuers and emergency medical services (EMS) to safely carry larger patients.
In many rescue situations, a victim may be suffering from an orthopedic injury due to a fall, and may require immobilization because of a splint. They may also have injuries that require first aid or open wound care, or could be suffering from low blood pressure due to blood loss. Even if the patient requires a backboard for spinal stabilization, or a collar for airway management, the Advanced Patient Mover is large enough to accommodate it. If the non-woven material becomes dirty or contaminated with body fluids, it can be washed off and air dried to be used again.
Benefits of the MedSource Patient Mover
The Advanced Patient Mover is a smart addition to the medical equipment of rescue services but can be utilized in any health care situation where a traditional stretcher is not feasible.
Rescue situations can occur in cramped apartment buildings, narrow alleys, or other places where it may be too difficult to maneuver a stretcher. Additionally, due to the degeneration of the spinal column as we age, elderly victims might be more comfortable being carried in the Advanced Patient Mover rather than being laid flat on a traditional stretcher. This makes it an easy addition to the equipment of any ambulance fleet while adding almost no weight.
The MedSource Patient Mover is lightweight, durable, and disposable. It can be deployed at a moment’s notice to assist with a rescue, and is small enough to be folded up and kept in a backpack, rucksack, or duffel bag. Store one in your first aid kit alongside other emergency pharmaceuticals and medical products. The Advanced Patient Mover is available as a single unit or in a pack of ten.
