The SpeedBlocks™ cervical immobilization device is an excellent example of how industrial design can synthesize multiple requirements into a product that is low cost, attractive, easy to use and comfortable for the patient.
Used by EMS personnel arriving at the scene of an accident, SpeedBlocks™ immobilize patients at risk of spinal cord injury. A universal base mounts to a backboard and a pair of blocks snap into the base on both sides of the patient’s head. The design is adjustable for children and helmeted adults.
The Inflate-A-Shield™ is a new type of CPR barrier device combining the superior protection of a full mask and the portability of a thin shield. The single use Inflate-a-Shield is designed to inflate with one breath.
The inflated cuff provides an effective seal against the patients face directing all blown air into the lungs & provides a psychological benefit by creating a distance between the patient and rescuer.
