The On A Board Backboard Pad provides a convenient and insulated cushion between the patient and the backboard. The foam used in the On A Board Backboard Pad is specially formulated to provide a high load distribution in a thin cushion structure reducing the point loads at the scapula and sacrum.

  • Latex Free
  • X-ray Transluscent
  • Disposable and easy to use
  • No tapes, straps or glue
  • The soft foam does not interfere with strapping systems
  • Thermal properties - warmer transport in colder weather
  • Dimensions: 25.5” x 13.75” x 0.75”

The On A Board Pad does not limit the use of head immobilizers, straps or strapping systems. The soft foam allows straps to work easily though the handholds. The positioning of the pad on the board does not inhibit the use or placement of head immobilization devices.spineboard padThe On a Board Pad will not prevent all pressure ulcers caused by laying on a backboard, but will significantly reduce the point loads at the scapula and the sacrum of patients being transported under emergency conditions. The specially designed shape and size of the On a Board Pad provides protection from the scapula to the sacrum where the majority of emergency transport skin damage events occur.

The scientifically formulated foam and structure of the On a Board pad redistributes the forces applied to the skin over a 3-4 times greater area, reducing the potential risk to the skin by the same amount, when patient restraints are properly tensioned.

Any product used to reduce the risk of pressure ulceration is limited to the physiological requirement of the patient’s tissue.

 

 

Studies have shown that significant distortion of the tissue increases the risk of ulceration. When using On A Board Pad, strap the patient with the minimum force necessary to properly immobilize, stabilize and protect the patent. Always avoid excessive tension when restraining a patient.
