This evacuation video with an alternating pressure mattress is worth watching

No matter where you are based or what you are doing now, when you are working with healthcare clients, it is very likely that you come across ‘anti-decubitus mattresses’. Also known as inflatable mattresses, active pressure relief mattresses or alternating pressure mattresses.

This kind of mattress is capable of providing the treatment and prevention of pressure ulcers. All in all, it’s a great product. But we were getting more and more questions, like:

‘How do you rescue a person, laying on this kind of mattress, in a emergency situation?’ 

When you come across these mattresses on the Intensive Care units or for long-term care, you are now able to help these patients escape during an emergency. We recorded this on video.

Evacuation sledges S-CAPEPOD

How you can save someone? You will need to use S-CAPEPOD Evacuation Sheet. This well-known evacuation device is permanently placed underneath the mattress. The patient doesn’t see, nor feels it. In a matter of seconds, you can prepare a patient for an evacuation.

And this is not just a slick marketing tagline. In fact, it’s true.

Here’s what the S-CAPEPOD has done for others:

“Evacuation system S-CAPEPOD is the fastest, safest and most effective I’ve seen so far” Daniel Fortin / Fire Fighter / Beauceville, Canada

“This evacuation sheet is super easy to use. After using it one time, you can immediately do it yourself. It’s fast and safe.” – Carlijn, Nurse, Severinus, The Netherlands

“The trainees from think that it’s a great tool. I’ve also tested it myself. It works fast and effective.” – Fire Safety Instructor,

And isn’t it great that you can use this life-saving device in combination with anti-decubitus mattresses…
How to do this??
