Orthopaedic stretcher (Two Piece) – Scoop Stretcher provides superior comfort and safety to patients who need spinal immobilization. -the Scoop eliminates the need for log-roll maneuvers, which significantly decreases movement to the C-spine. The Scoop is Produced using X-ray translucent, lightweight, high-impact composite materials. The two hinged, interlocking pieces allow operators to bring the two halves together beneath the patient and gently scoop them up. Includes three burgundy retraints.
A study in the Jan-March, 2006 issue of the “Prehospital Emergency Care Journal” indicates the Scoop Stretcher “was found to be as effective as, if not superior to, the standard of care, a rigid long backboard” when used for spinal immobilization.
