Hospital Aids Ski Pad was one of the original evacuation mattresses for the quick and safe evacuation of non-ambulant individuals in emergencies.
Designed for use in areas where space is limited, such as congested hospital wards. As well as buildings with narrow corridors or single width fire doors. Ideal for patients who need to be moved in a supine position or unable to sit in an evacuation chair.
In the event of an emergency the Ski Pad is easily removed from it’s storage bag. The individual is quickly transferred to the Ski Pad and secured in place using the highly visible seat belt style straps. While being moved the individual is protected by a 5cm thick foam pad. The tough, slippery, vinyl coated base means that the pad moves easily over indoor and outdoor surfaces.
The Hospital Aids Ski Pad can be manufactured individually for the varying requirements of our customers. For example, a Mini Ski Pad for children or a Double Thickness Ski Pad for individuals with brittle bones.
