new AllMed SpeedStrap SC is my latest version of the 12-point SpeedStrap for backboards
with pins. The center strap is 3” longer than our regular model, and the three
middle straps are free-floating on the center strap. You can slide them up and down for proper alignment with
the pins. The SpeedStrap SC can either be left on the backboard like our
regular SpeedStrap, or it can be stored in the carry case provided. It can be
applied quickly and easily.
use the SpeedStrap SC first place the top red colored strap at the very top of
the chest, high up under the arms. Then secure the remaining straps for rapid
and effective patient immobilization. The top two shoulder straps are designed
to help secure the CID, for integrated alignment of the cervical spine. You can
apply it quickly using the speed clip pins, or leave it pinned on the board and
use the center buckles to open the straps for patient positioning. This versatility is
of enormous value in heavy snow conditions when using the clips becomes very difficult.
