Now there’s a fast, safe way to evacuate patients

Australian safety specialists Industroquip has released a new rescue mat designed for fast, safe evacuations of patients.

The new AlbacMat is designed for simple one-person operation in most rescue situations. This is essential when time is critical.

The AlbacMat is totally independent of its environment – whether the patient is in bed, an office, in the bathroom, in a corridor or an underground mine.

They can be placed easily and quickly on the AlbacMat and taken directly to safety.

The compact, self-storage, lightweight design ensures Industroquip’s AlbacMat is always ready for use.

The AlbacMat is manufactured in Australia to Australian Standards 2755. It is constructed from customized materials including lightweight heavy duty canvas and polypropylene board.

The Polypropylene board acts as an insulator to the patient and absorbs any concussions incurred while in transit. It also allows the AlbacMat to glide over all types of surfaces safely including carpet and vinyl, concrete and bitumen or grass making it simple for the rescuers and comfortable for the patient.

The AlbacMat handle system provides excellent control in any situation including down staircases and kerbing.

Inventor Alison Backhouse spent 18 months designing the AlbacMat.

It was initially designed for evacuations in aged care and hospital facilities, but is now proving to be a popular rescue tool for industry.
