Product Feature: LSP Half Back Backboard Extrication/Rescue Vest

Allied Healthcare has come up with an extremely unique vertical extrication device. With the LSP Half Back Backboard Extrication Rescue Vest, it combines the capabilities of a full body harness with the ability to immobilize. 

Immobilization is key when/if the patient seems to have cervical/spinal trauma or it could be suspected, so doing it fast is key.

There are two important components to the LSP Half Back--a rugged, padded full body harness, and a removable aluminum back stay with head immobilizer. The point of this unique design is to allow for vertical extrication of a patient in a confined or elevated space, yet allows for rapid immobilization. It works well for patients in a confined or elevated space, including high-rise buildings, storage tanks, ships and automobiles.

Here are a few more of the features:
  • Removable aluminum back stay allows the LSP Half Back to be used as an immobilization device or as a rescue harness
  • Optional Vertical Lift Strap allows for quick vertical extrication of the patient
  • Closed-cell foam interior molds to the shape of the body, providing comfort and more complete body immobilization
  • Optional Helmet Immobilizer allows for treatment of helmeted victims
  • Comes complete with a V-shaped padded head rest and a full standard head immobilizer
