Yates 901 Spec Pak - Mil for Patient Rescue and Evacuation
Immobilization system with full body harness useful for any confined space operation where a vertical environment
Patient packaging and extrication system combines the backboard immobilization of a short board with the suspension and support of a full body harness. The Spec Pak 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. 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. Unique selfadjusting (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. Designed by Spec Rescue International and Yates Tactical. Weight 15 lbs. LIFTING BRIDLE SYSTEM is now included with SPEC PAK (Spec Pak will not function in all lifting modes without the use of Lifting Bridles). Use of Lifting bridle is recommended for use in most lifting operations. The upper D ring attachment should only be used for short duration lifts 5-10 minutes . Standard and new Spreader Bar lifting bridle systems available. Spek Pak comes with new DynaMed forehead and chin restraint straps.
The SpecPak is a unique casualty conditioning, retrieval and removal system that combines a hard immobilizer plan, a cervical spine support system and the maintenance of a full body harness as well as an option that makes the assembly horizontally retractable. . Equipped with a polyethylene plate integrated into the back of the harness, it allows a smooth and easy sliding even in congested spaces.
The SpecPak is equipped with a certified full body harness (ANSI Z359-1-1992) that avoids the use of an additional harness. The adjustable cervical support system eliminates the problems encountered during vertical movements.
