Ultimat’s Rapid Response Transfer Sheet is used by emergency services and first responders as an extremely fast response to assist in moving a person in confined, difficult or compromised spaces, where a hoist or ridged carry system cannot be used or is not assessed to be readily available.
The emergency sheet is used to manually transfer the user to a suitable area where the next level of care can be instigated. The sheet has been manufactured using a flexible PVC coated heavy duty Polyester Mesh, which with its perforated design allows ingress of air though the transfer sheet, reducing the risk of suffocation should the users face, mouth or nose come into contact with the sheet.
It features six handles either side of the sheet that can accommodate as many as twelve persons in the lifting process.
The full length sheet is 2m x 1m and lessens the strain and decreases the risk of injury to both user and operatives; a minimum of two people are required for safe transfer and operatives should be trained on emergency sheet evacuations by their employers.
The emergency transfer sheet is washable and can be cleaned with alcohol free detergents.
