Yates® Spec Pak
The Spec Pak is a patient packaging and extrication system that combines the spinal immobilization of a short backboard with the suspension and support of a full body harness. The Spec Pak system utilizes an integrated polyethylene board along the back to reduce wear and create a smooth sliding surface for confined space operations. Grab handles located at the head, shoulders and sides allow rescuers to better handle the patient package during movement through tight spaces. Extremely useful for any confined space operation where a vertical environment is encountered. In addition, the Spec Pak system is a lifting harness, thus eliminating the need for a separate victim harness. Patient can be lifted vertically from D ring located at top of back board. Unique self-adjusting cervical restraint eliminates the problems associated with lifting patients vertically while secured to a rigid backboard. The Spec Pak is only intended as a limited spinal immobilization system. It must be used in conjunction with proper spinal immobilization such as the use of a cervical collar where conditions and protocols dictate.

This system of lifting is useful when longer suspension times are anticipated, reducing the chances of development of suspension syndrome. Lifting bridle is attached to new chest mounted D-rings on Spec Pak. Head, crotch and leg strap allows for complete stabilization of the patient without the need of a full litter. Easily adjustable with use of 6kN rated Ancra Cam Buckles. Lifting bridle has full strength 22.2 kN backup strap for attachment to head located lifting D-ring on Spec Pak.
