The Yates Spec Pack is a stretcher system suitable for vertical and confined space rescue. The system utilizes an integrated polyethylene board along the back to reduce wear and create a smooth sliding surface for confined space operations. Grab handles located at the head and sides allow rescuers to better handle the patient package during movement through tight spaces.
In addition, the Spec Pak system is a lifting harness which eliminates the need for a separate victim harness. Unique self adjusting (sliding) cervical restraint eliminates the problems associated with lifting patients vertically while secured to a rigid backboard. Storage bag provided is equipped with shoulder and waist straps.Spec Pak is only intended as a limited spinal immobilization system. It must be used in conjunction with proper spinal immobilization such as the use of a cervical collar where conditions and protocols dictate.
The Spec Pak includes a Lifting Bridle System and X Collar.
