The Evacuation EMS HoverJack® Device allows EMS staff to lift and evacuate patients in the most challenging environments. Four air chambers are inflated to lift the patient from the floor in a supine position, maintaining patient dignity and minimizing risk of injury to the crew by creating a no-lift environment. The tapered head-end improves maneuverability around corners and down stairwells.
When used in conjunction with the HoverMatt Air Transfer System, a seamless solution is presented for lateral transfer from bed or floor to the Evacuation EMS HoverJack, and on to the ambulance stretcher in preparation for transport. When inflated, a cushion of air beneath the HoverMatt® reduces the force needed to move the patient by 80-90%, while also reducing patient skin shear and bruising.
