The EMS Immobile-VAC Full Body Vacuum Mattress is a lightweight, durable immobilization system designed to fill the voids that are left with a back board.The EMS Immobile-VAC Vacuum Splints and Mattresses are the new standard of care in patient immobilization. These highly effective aids for external, temporary fracture fixation and immobilization have been developed and tested throughout the world. Whether in Europe, Australia, Japan or the United States, the EMS Immobile-VAC system provides the required immobilization and support without placing unnecessary pressure on the injury site.
EMS Immobile-VAC systems respond to the concerns of the medical professional by offering a unit that is easy to clean. The removable strapping system reduces the areas that could trap fluids. The valve is easy to use, even when wearing gloves, and is easy to find in the dark.
No additional padding is required. The mattress automatically contours to the patient’s body shape providing comfort and reduces the pain common with back boards. This makes the mattress ideal for situations dealing with geriatric patients and long transports.
The unique handle and strapping system allows for quick application and easy clean up. Side squeeze adjustable buckles provide the rescuer with fast application and easy adjustment. When vacuum is applied, the mattress compresses and becomes rigid. Straps are readjusted to secure the patient to the mattress simply by pulling on the loose end of the straps.
The heavy duty mattress handles come with comfortable grips that are designed to transfer the weight of the patient to the straps. Since the handles are not permanently attached, there is no need to worry about them tearing away from the unit. All components of the EMS Immobile-VAC SYSTEM are removable for easy cleaning.

Product itself appears to be O.K.
Good mattress, poor carrying case
Mattress is rugged and quality, but the carrying case is poor.
"Do you know anybody using this system?"
These are a new product for us and we have no history with this particular model of vacuum splint. The MDI vacuum splint is an economical alternative to some of the other manufacturers offering similar products.
"Hello, Im looking for the dimensions of the vacuum mattress when it is folded and in it's case to see if it will fit in my ambulance's splinting compartment."
The dimensions of the mattress are 81"" x 36"". The manufacturer doesn't give dimensions of the product in a folded status.
"can it be used with a power suction machine?"
The MDI Full Body Vacuum Mattress is designed to be utilized with the supplied pump. It is not recommended to deviate from the equipment designed for this product.
