Quantum EMS Solutions Announces the Launch of the New Full Range Ambulance Child Restraint System

Quantum EMS Solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of its new product the ACR- 4 the full range Ambulance Child Restraint System for the US Market. 

ACR- 4 (Ambulance Child Restraint) is the latest version of the original ACR however, ACR-4 now allows for the safe restraint of all children from 4–99 pounds during transport. The ACR- 4 is an innovative, flexible and fully adjustable harnessing system designed for the safe and effective transport of infants and children in an ambulance, and it is color coded for easy selection. Universal cot straps (included) connect with the ACR harness, holding the patient in place to prevent potentially dangerous movement during transportation.

Key features include:

  • The ability to perform procedures while the child is restrained, ACR has open channel design from the airway to the waist.
  • The restraint tightens into the mattress of the cot, not the patient.
  • Fits on any cot without a bracket adapter.
  • Can be used in sitting or supine position.
  • Fully crash tested.
  • Machine Washable.
  • One restraint system to service all patients.

Kris Bordnick, Vice-President of EMS Sales North America, issued the following statement in regard to the announcement: “The ACR- 4 is the only single device in the world that provides a safe, innovative, cost-effective, solution that allows EMS Providers to safely restrain a full range of pediatric patients from 4-99 pounds. Additionally, the ACR allows providers to safely perform medical procedures while the child is restrained, there is no reason to un-restrain pediatric patients and put them in danger during transport. Also, the single device allows for the elimination of having to store and use multiple products to accomplish the task of restraining children.”

Bordnick also added, ““According to www.saferidenews.com, approximately 620,000 children per year ride in ambulances while improperly restrained.” While multiple factors contribute to this number, the ACR- 4 product when properly utilized will assist in reducing that number due to its flexibility allowing for a broader range of pediatric patients to be restrained correctly.

The ACR-4 will be formally launched at the EMS Today Conference in Baltimore, MD on February 25, 2015.
