"I've fallen and I can't get up" is a line from a memorable commercial that neglects to show the creative lengths to whichEMS crews will go to assist the elderly patient population. Our lifting techniques are as varied as the patients who need our help. The new Pakkie Personal Mobility Sling Rescue and Evacuation Device offers a simple solution to the problem of finding a good hand hold on a poorly positioned patient. It features a simple but effective nylon seat that's reinforced with nylon webbing and a sling with extended hand holds that can make our body mechanics a little safer.
