Designed to prevent first responder back injuries and extend careers, the WauK® board is the newest innovation in patient extrication. It's a dolly designed specifically for transporting people. This patient transport board allows first responders to roll their patients to safety instead of carrying them.
The WauK® board's one-of-a-kind, patented design adds the functionality of a dolly to a conventional backboard, allowing a first responder to extract an immobilized patient from tight, restricted spaces without back injury to the first responder. This unique dolly feature allows first responders to:
- roll a patient, rather than carry a patient
- remove patients from the most constricted locations
- prevent career limiting back injuries
- prevent movement of the patient during extrication
Two 3" diameter wheels at the foot end provide smooth rollability. A rugged built-in foot rest perpendicular to the board when opened, or flush with the board when folded shut.
