Using the right equipment can make all the difference when pediatric spinal immobilization is required. The Pedi-Pac from FERNO provides spinal immobilization and restraint specifically for children 28-54 inches tall and weighing 20-90 lbs. (9 to 41 kg). Cot-fastening loops and color-coded straps provide fast and flexible restraint. The head support is specifically designed with a small child’s disproportionately large head in mind, keeping the child’s neck immobile and airway open. Sewn-in lifting handles at both ends allow for easy handling in confined areas.
In addition, the Pedi-Pac is designed to work with adult backboards and ambulance cots, so purchasing more cots is not necessary.
