Quantum EMS Ambulance Child Restraint


When it comes to children, safety is of utmost priority. The Quantum EMS Ambulance Child Restraint helps to protect children being transported in ambulances by holding them safely in place on the stretcher, and preventing them from making any dangerous movements during transportation.

You can see exactly how it works by watching this simple video.

 

The restraint harness is made of a breathable, machine washable fabric that maximizes airflow and meets infection control standards. The child-patient will be comfortable in transport, as the harness is padded to reduce the risk of pressure sores.

If medical intervention is necessary there's a quick-release chest strap feature.

Available in four sizes, universally compatible with any cot, and serving children between 4 and 99 lbs., the Quantum EMS Ambulance Child Restraint belongs on your transport.

When you're looking for products on our site, often times the amount of choices can be overwhelming. One way to help narrow down is to click on the "sort by popularity" option. This way you can see our top sellers at a glance and the masses don't lie.

One of our top selling stethoscopes continues to be the Littmann 2141 Master Classic II Stethoscope in 27". It comes in a special edition black, just black, burgandy and purple, truly catering to all!

Awesome sound! I had trouble with other stethoscopes, nothing sounded clear, then I tried my fellow EMTs scope which was a Littmann. I now have my own and love it! -Firefighter Z


When you're looking for a professional scope, the Littmann is it. It's a high-performance single-lumen tubing that gives you excellent acoustic performance.

The diaphragm of the Littmann is tunable and can easily and conveniently alternate between the low and high-frequency sounds without having to turn over the chest piece. A single-sided chest piece has more portable convenience that users love.
