Emergency Immobilizers, Whole Body, Adult

Definition : Whole body emergency immobilizers designed for maximum restriction of movement and/or immobilization of an adult entire body. These immobilizers usually consist of rigid structures (typically a backboard) with a size that is long enough for use in adults to permit the rigid attachment of the entire body. The board is frequently made of light metallic or hard plastic radiolucent materials and compatible with head immobilizers. Adult whole body immobilizers are mainly used after traumatic injuries in emergency situations, allowing easy transportation and/or diagnosis including radiographic procedures.
