EMS Back Injury Solution
Back injuries related to difficult lifting of heavy patients is a huge problem for EMTs and paramedics in emergency medical services but perhaps not anymore. In another product innovator segment from EMS World Expo 2012 in New Orleans, our finale episode team brings Scott Kier (MedicSBK.com) to the table with his pick.
From the EZ-LIFT Rescue Systems website (http://www.ezliftrescue.com/):
With a breakthrough patented design, the EZ LIFT Rescue Systems™ reinvents the traditional backboard to make lifting safer and reduce on-the-job back injuries. This unique design uses extendable handles to allow firefighters and EMS personnel to lift from a safe position near, at, or above the knees – as opposed to the conventional lifting position from the floor to the gurney.

Check out the video segment from our team at Expo and thanks to Dave Robinson, President of EZ-LIFT Rescue Systems for joining us on our finale segment at Expo.
