New patient packaging and extrication system combines the backboard immobilization of a short board with the suspension and support of a full body harness. The 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 on sides allows rescuers to better handle the patient during movement through spaces when needed. The Pak is extremely useful for any confined space operation where a vertical environment is encountered. In addition, the Pak system is a fully certified lifting harness, thus eliminating 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. 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 Gear Inc.
