The ULTI-MAT enables first responders and nursing staff to quickly and safely evacuate people with mobility problems during an emergency. It is designed to be small and compact as well as being very hard wearing. The unit in constructed of highly durable fabric with a foam pad for comfort and is available in standard and bariatric sizes.
The ULTI-MAT consists of a single piece of very strong webbing which runs the full length of the unit encapsulating both head and foot end pulling straps, together with the two body straps for tall and short patients along with a leg strap. Once the patient is on the unit they can be enveloped for security by the wings on either side then secured by the webbing and buckles and pulled to safety by means of the head and foot pull straps. On the base of the unit are four carrying handles in high visibility yellow. The ULTI-MAT can be rolled up into its self contained pouch/foot pocket for convenient compact storage.
