The XTRA Advantage
The XTRA backboard’s patented design provides
the optimal combination of rigidity and x-ray
Other modern backboards have been designed on the
basis of x-ray translucence instead of rigidity, at the
expense of patient safety.
XTRA has been designed to provide 100% x-ray
translucence while maintaining the necessary rigidity
to protect the patient from further injury during
At 72" long x 16" wide x 1.85" deep, and weighing
just 15.25 pounds, the XTRA backboard will fit into
any standard ambulance storage compartment, and is
easy to carry with its 18 large hand holds.
The smooth HDPE surface allows for easy cleaning
and disinfecting, while the fully sealed one-piece
construction of the XTRA makes it fully fluid
The XTRA will float a 200 lb. adult, and has been shown in tests to withstand a distributed
weight load in excess of 1,000 pounds without permanent structural failure.
The XTRA backboard can be ordered with large-format custom graphics (22" x 7.5" area)
to proudly display the name and logo of your service, and distinguish your boards from
other services. Allied has no setup charges for custom graphics.
The XTRA backboard meets national and international guidelines for immobilization.
It is compliant with OSHA and ISO guidelines for immobilization, and carries a CE mark.
