Backboards, Cots & Stretchers
Backboards, Cots and Stretchers are an essential part of patient care in emergency medical transport and care. Backboards and Stretchers are used for initial extrication and movement of the patient, while Cots are used within the ambulance. Stretchers are available in a wide variety of styles designed to accomodate for the patient's injuries or location. Backboards are rigid boards designed for immobilization and are typically available in sizes for adults and pediatric patients. Backboard Strap Systems help to secure and immobilize the patient to the board for safety and reduction in risk of injury during transport. Conversely, Cot Sheets and Pillows offer greater comfort to patients while also providing some level of infection control. QuadMed offers a full selection of Cots, Backboards and Stretchers by top brands like Ferno, DMS, Iron Duck, or Taylor Medical.
