The Rescue Sheet is an emergency evacuation system designed for individuals with lower extremity or mobility disabilities or spinal cord injury and other people who are unable to get out of bed. The Rescue Sheet straps to the underside of a mattress of a bed with four elastic straps that fit over the mattress corners. It has two nylon safety restraints, each which is sewn across the full width of the sheet. In case of emergency, the caregiver(s) extend the end of the two safety restraints from the sides of the sheet and fasten each restraint across to secure the chest and legs of the user, securing him or her to the mattress. When pulled tight, the restraints also will bend the sides of the mattress upward so the user's sides are protected during evacuation. The restraints fasten with Delrin buckles.. The Rescue Sheet also has long fabric handles that extend from the underside at the head and foot of the mattress. The handles can be used to lift and move the user and the mattress as a single unit to safety. When the Rescue Sheet is not in use, the handles tuck under the mattress, and the halves of the safety restraints tuck into pockets sewn into the sheet. DIMENSIONS (LxW): 1.91 x .92 meters. COLOR: White with neon green straps.
