Simply, the AlbacMat is an Emergency rescue mat designed to slide over all types of surfaces. It is a stretcher like design, with polypropylene filling that when in storage is half the size of a rolled up sleeping bag. Constructed with heat-resistant material it is moved by a rescuer – enabling rescues to be performed as fast as physically possible.
All AlbacMat’s carry the same features of:
3 patient securing straps for flexibility across patient (including small, amputees or disabled)
3 transit strap for safely moving the patient by the rescuer at the head end.
1 transit strap for moving patient from the feet end when required
6 carry handles to enable the carrying of patient in a stretcher – spine board can be inserted
Thermal cover – for warmth and protection and can also help calm a panicky patient.
Polypropylene board as the base for patient comfort, heat protection and slide-ability.
AlbacMat Pediatric/Peadiatric: Custom made based on the standard size, with additional patient strapping. This enables the rescuer to use the chest securing strap (for an adult) as the transit strap to maintain full control of the smaller patient whilst ensuring correct posture for the rescuer.
