If you’re not already using a Back Raft, STUDIES SHOW your patients wish you would.

The Back Raft is a low-cost, inflatable air mattress and spinal stabilization device that improves patient comfort and virtually eliminates the risk of pressure sores and other secondary injury during transport.
The Back Raft inflates in seconds, filling the voids between the patient and the backboard, thus eliminating pressure points.
