- Product From Vetter Belt
The Vetter Belt is the most safe, simple and secure way to get a non-injured person back on their feet. The bariatric lifting assist belt can be placed on a patient, patient stood and belt released all in less than five minutes. The one-size-fits-all accommodates a person up to 72 inches in circumference. The Vetter Belt is rugged with double-thick, triple-stitched, bar tack lifting handles that are built into the belt. Each leg strap has 14 double thick daisy chain loops that provide multiple options for maximum quick clip adjustments. The Vetter Belt has a tested breaking point of 5,760 pounds. Attachments and adjustments are made at the hips, discreetly away from the person’s groin, respecting the person’s privacy and modesty using Black Diamond notchless carabiners at adjustable attachment points. There is no pinching, cinching or slipping, just clipping. Carabiners provide quick, easy, clean connecting and disconnecting. They are better than plastic buckles that tend to break, or “D” rings that can be difficult to thread, especially when wearing latex gloves. The Vetter Belt is designed to assist people getting back on their feet while reducing the number of back injuries to firefighters, emergency services personnel and other healthcare workers.

- Product From North American Rescue (NAR)
The nature of high extremity wounds to the thigh/groin region challenges the effective control of rapid hemorrhage. When treatment of such an injury is not amenable to standard tourniquets, the Junctional Emergency Treatment Tool (JETT™) is a ruggedized mechanical compression device designed especially for the prehospital environment to effectively control inguinal junctional hemorrhage at or near the point of injury. Constructed of 1050 Denier ballistic nylon, mil spec webbing and 2 in. Duraflex buckle, the JETT™’s ready-to-use belt is complete with two individually adjustable compression pad assemblies strategically placed for simultaneous application to one or both lower limbs. When situated over the crease between the pelvis and thigh, these prepositioned pads are poised to apply pin point pressure to the femoral artery by tightening the ergonomic Threaded T-Handle (windlass axle). The unique locking mechanism with lanyard and toggle keeps the device securely tightened down in spite of vibration or bumps that may occur during patient transport.

PREPARE FOR EVEN THE SMALLEST EMERGENCIES.
Improvised equipment, or scaled down versions of adult equipment, are not adequate because kids are not little adults. Their heads are larger in proportion to their bodies and the nature of their injuries is often different. Every minute counts in an emergency call when a child is involved. Having the proper equipment to treat these small patients counts too.
