Medical Backboards See Rotational Molding Innovations For Spinal Boards

Bandel Innovations, LLC., introduces the WauKboard, a medical backboard with built-in features of a dolly. The WauK boards primary purpose is to prevent back injuries for first responders when extricating patients from tight or difficult to access locations. Bandel Innovations, LLC introduces the WauK boardBy designing in the features of a dolly, permanently mounted wheels and a self-contained footrest, the WauKboard allows a first responder to deploy the footrest at a moments notice and roll the person out of the constrained area, rather than carry the patient.

The WauKboard is designed to continue to fit in the backboard or oxygen compartment of a standard ambulance. It was also designed to retain the attributes of current spinal backboards (light-weight, rigid, floatable, x-ray translucent, MRI compatible and seamless construction for cleanability) while adding the features of a dolly.
