The ResQmat is an emergency evacuation system designed for use with individuals with lower extremity, walking or mobility disabilities or spinal cord injury. The ResQmat is intended to provide the means for a nondisabled person to move a non-ambient individual to a safe location in an emergency. This product consists of a thick foam pad with a vinyl backing and a pillow at one end. There are two fabric handles - one above the user's head and another below the user's feet – and a strap that runs the length of the mat that can be used to shorten it. Once the user is laid on the mat, it is wrapped around him or her and secured with four safety straps with Velcro closures at the user’s chest, torso, thighs and shins. Once the user is secured in the mat, one or more rescuers can use the handles to move the user out of danger by lifting or dragging. The mat insulates the user from extreme temperatures and absorbs some concussions caused by dragging over irregular surfaces or uneven ground. The board rolls us and stores in a large storage bag (included). The ResQmat can be used multiple times indoors if clean as directed after each use; however, it should not be used again if used outdoors. COLOR: Yellow mat with black straps, neon green handles and a red storage bag.
