The ResQme is an emergency evacuation system designed for use with individuals with lower extremity, walking or mobility disabilities or spinal cord injury. The ResQme 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 board with a footplate that folds up on one end and an adjustable pillow at the other end. There are two fabric handles - one above the user's head and another below the user's feet. It has three safety straps with Velcro closures that fit across the user’s chest, torso and shins to secure the user to the board. Once the user is secured on the mat with his or her feet firmly on the footplate, one or more rescuers can use the handles to move the user out of danger by lifting or dragging. When the safety straps are tightened, the sides of the board fold up to further secure the user. The board insulates the user from extreme temperatures and absorbs some concussions caused by dragging the mat over irregular surfaces or uneven ground. The board folds for storage and transport. The ResQme can be used multiple times indoors if wiped clean with a disinfectant after each use; however, it should not be used again if used outdoors. OPTIONS: Extension strap. DIMENSIONS: Can fit children and adults up to 78 inches tall. CAPACITY: 440 pounds. COLOR: White board with white and red straps and neon green handles.
