The LSP Half Back Vest combines a full body harness and head and back immobilizer into a rugged and versatile vertical extrication device.
The rugged and versatile LSP Half Back is a unique vertical extrication device that combines the capabilities of a full body harness with the ability to immobilize the patient if cervical/spinal trauma is suspected.
The LSP Half Back consists of two components: a rugged, padded full body harness and a removable aluminum back stay with a V-shaped padded head rest and a full standard head immobilizer. The vest's closed-cell foam interior molds to the shape of the body, providing comfort and more complete body immobilization.
The unique design of the Half Back allows for rapid immobilization and vertical extrication of a patient in a confined or elevated space, including but not limited to high rise buildings, storage tanks, ships, and automobiles.
