01 Overview

The Ski Pad is a substitute mattress ideal for use in care homes and hospitals as well as being effective for many other situations.

In an emergency Ski Pads are quickly and easily removed from their storage bag by ripping the velcro flap undone whereupon the ski pad falls out almost deploying itself. The patient is then simply transferred on to the red mattress and wrapped in a blanket before being secured in place with the seat belt style fastening straps. They are then ready to be taken to a safe location.
