Production and sale of the pelvic sling, femoral joint immobilizer in Sardinia, Italy
This is a new system for immobilizing the pelvis and femoral joints for injured patients. It connects directly to the spinal backboard, ensuring stability during transport. There is no other system like it in the country. Let us take a look at some of its essential features.
1) The outer part is made up of highly resistant, impermeable, and washable Nylon with quick connect-release polyester straps for anchoring to the spinal backboard, and the interior is made up of a set of radiolucent splints. The product is entirely handmade.
2) It is made up of a single piece, with a padded centre, and two side wings that close in front using 3 quick connect-release polyester straps. The central part connects to the spinal backboard using a system of quick connect-release straps in the four corners. It is universal and can be adapted to all spinal backboards.
3) Because of its simplicity, it is quick to place on the spinal backboard and therefore on the patient, and it is just as quick and easy to remove at the end of each intervention for cleaning and disinfection and for its recovery from the Accident and Emergency Unit.
4) Adaptable to any shape as the straps are adjustable.
