The Spec Pak from Yates is a patient packaging and extrication system which combines the backboard immobilization of a short board with the suspension and support of a full body harness. Grab handles located at the head and sides allow rescuers to better handle the patient package during movement through tight spaces. Extremely useful for any confined space operation where a vertical environment is encountered.
In addition, the Spec Pak system is a lifting harness, thus eliminating the need for a separate victim harness. A unique self-adjusting (sliding), cervical restraint eliminates the problems associated with lifting patients vertically while secured to a rigid backboard. This model includes the Lifting Bridle and Combat Medical Systems XCollar universal one size adjustable cervical collar.
The 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 storage bag provided is equipped with a shoulder strap for carrying and top connection point for lowering without a patient in the device.
