Disposable pads prevent sores

Oct. 5, 2009 - The Protech Disposable E1436 is a combination of medical-grade foam elastomer similar to medical-grade gel. The pad cushions patients against pain and pressure which reduces the risk of pressure sore development (decubitus ulcer).

The Disposable E1436 includes an adhesive backing that keeps the pad in place while in use, but does not leave an adhesive residue on the spine board and can be easily removed when the transport is complete. The pads are hypoallergenic (no latex) and hydrophobic (designed to not stick to wounds).

The pad is safe to use in water rescue and measures 14 inches wide by 36 inches long. Although this is a disposable pad, multiple uses are possible at the determination of the end user.
