Adult and Pediatric Vacuum Mattresses

The EVAC-U-SPLINT Adult and Pediatric vacuum mattresses provide fast, effective and comfortable immobilization for the entire patient. Molding to the specific contours of the patient's body without applying pressure, vacuum mattresses reduce pressure point tenderness. The Pediatric Mattress holds a child securely and comfortably, which can reduce their anxiety during transport. And both mattresses are filled with thousands of polystyrene beads, which act as a thermal insulator to help maintain the patient's core body temperature.

  • Easy to use, fast and comfortable

  • Molds to exact shape of the patient’s body to immobilize and support

  • X-Ray and MRI compatible

  • Durable manual pump evacuates mattress in less than 25 seconds

  • Excellent companion to the CombiCarrierII to further increase patient comfort during transport

...proved durable, easy to use and an excellent addition to our emergency stores.”

Norm Gray

"We fully endorse and have great confidence in their (mattress) use in the treatment of back and hip injuries in both ski area and back country rescue."

Brian Zachariah, MD
Southwestern Medical Center
Dallas, TX

"... in many ways its (mattress) use is superior to immobilization with a standard wooden spine board."

Janet Scott
Prichard Volunteer
Fire Department

Prichard, WV

"Everyone who sees this (mattress) product in use is amazed."

Chuck Rockyvich
Phoenix Fire Department
Phoenix, AZ

"An added benefit is that because the device (pediatric mattress) is comfortable, the anxiety level of the child remains constant or is even reduced after immobilization."
