A recent addition to our product range is the Bariatric Rescue Kit, developed alongside Gary Wilson. Due to the increasing demand for the Fire Service to assist the Ambulance Service in transporting Bariatric patients, the need for equipment to aid in this procedure soon became apparent.
The Bariatric Rescue Kit is intended for use on casualties of all sizes from the large to the very heavy and large (Bariatric) casualty, that require rescue from unusual positions or areas of restricted space, where there is no alternative to manual handling.
The kit is a professional and methodical solution to dealing with this type of incident and puts in place a Safe System of Work that reduces the risk of physical injury to personnel. The Bariatric Rescue Kit is designed to allow as many personnel as the situation dictates, to share the weight of the casualty or where possible only enough weight to allow the casualty to be slid to safety.
The Bariatric Rescue Kit comprises of two rescue slings, one small rescue sheet, one large rescue sheet and a heavy duty storage bag. The kit is manufactured from top quality canvas in its natural uncoloured state, heavy duty PVC and 40mm webbing straps, with a safe working load in excess of 1000 kg. All the materials used in its construction have a safe fire rating which allow for the kit to be used in fire rescue situation.
