The fixation to the stretcher, through the Rock Straps system of nylon/self-adherent strips belts, permits lifting of the patient even vertically during extrication or transportation in difficult conditions.
For the same reason, if the patient vomits it is possible to rotate the stretcher 90° on its side, avoiding the risk that any fluids are inhaled by the casualty.
Spencer ROCK PIN spine board can adapt to anyone, from children over 25 kg [55 lbs] up to big adults, maintaining the attachment of the belts around the victim's head, hence minimising lateral movements during transportation.
Spencer ROCK PIN spine board is completely compatible with all Spencer collars, and when use of both is combined, the most advanced system of spinal immobilization possible is achieved. Spencer Rock can be contained inside basket stretchers.
The lifting of the board is made easier thanks to the peculiar design of the hand grips, studied to maximise the distance from the ground.
Spencer ROCK PIN spine board can be used in water, mountain and road rescue situations.
A special Rock, highly appreciated by rescue teams, puts together its famous technical characteristics and a built in system that allows to fix the restraints to the board.
The side handles are incorporated elements, they make easy buckling-unbuckling operations for a fast and safe anchorage of the patient's restraints with carabiner. The reduced thickness allows an easy storage of the spine board.
