FRAN HILDWINE, BS, NREMT-P, CCEMT-P | | Wednesday, June 27, 2007


Moving sick and injured patients from their seat to your stair chair or stretcher can cause back injury or patient discomfort. Some EMS crews may choose a vehicle extrication device to help with patient lift while others may elect to just grin and bear it as they use brute force. The newPatient Assist Lift (PAL) fromiTec Manufacturing offers an easy-to-use alternative. A flexible plastic back that's lined with closed-cell foam makes it easy to position the PAL. The two straps are secured around the patient's torso and hips, and the Ïpower grip handlesÓ are combined with improved body mechanics to safely move the patient.
