The Original Ferno K.E.D.® is a versatile, improved means of immobilizing and extricating patients from auto accidents or confined spaces. The wrap-around design provides horizontal flexibility for easy application and vertical rigidity for maximum support of the spine, neck, and head during extrication. The K.E.D.® immobilizes the torso, head and neck, enabling prompt extrication while minimizing risks of further injury. X-rays or advanced life support procedures can be performed with the K.E.D.® in place. The Ferno K.E.D.® includes wrap-around vest, Adjusta-Pad neck-roll, two head straps and a carrying case. Heavy-duty, vinyl-coated nylon is durable and easy to clean and the K.E.D. stores rolled up, ready for immediate use. Built-in handles enable rescuers to get a firm grip on the patient and K.E.D.® as one unit. Adapts to a hip and pelvic splint by simple inversion. Adjustable, fold-back sides permit easy access to patient's chest. Can be used for multiple patient sizes, including children and pregnant women. Color-coded, sewn-in securing straps and snaplock buckles for quick, easy application. Effective in immobilization of pediatric patients.
