Selecting a good spine board
When selecting good quality spine boards, there are a few things to consider. Some things to consider are runners, maintenance, and water buoyancy. Just what are the qualities for a good spine board?
One thing to consider is runners. Does the spineboard have runners? First, what are runners? When the spineboard is laying flat on the ground, and the victim is laying on it, the board must be picked up easily by the handles. So the runners are under the spineboard and the they elevate the board so the fingers can go around the handles while the board is laying flat on the ground. This allows the board to be picked up easily in an emergency situation, which you need and is a must. A good spine board will have the runners built in. Built in, meaning no attachments and no replacements. The runners are built in or molding into the board. And the runners will last though the lifetime of the board.
Another quality of a good spineboard is the weight capacity. Make sure your spineboard will handle everyone, from the smallest to the biggest person out there. The weight capacity of the spineboard should be at least 400 to 500 lbs. This should be noted when selecting your board.
You also want your spineboard to be maintenance free. You want a board that will be able to stay in the rain, sun or any weather condition without maintaining it or worrying about clean up. You want to be able to leave your board in the elements or anywhere because you want it close by and easily accessible in any given moment, just in case it is needed in an emergency. So the board must be able to handle rain, sun, wind, salt water, and chlorine water. You want the coating of the material to be made so that none of these elements will seep into the board and your board is looking good and ready to be used even after exposure to these elements.
Make sure your spineboard is good for water rescue because the board may be used in a swimming pool or beach. This means you want the board to be buoyant, but not too buoyant. In case of a water emergency and the victim is in the water, the spine board must go under the victim easily. Imagine for a second that you have a victim in the water and you’re trying to put a spine board under him. While in the water, you want to strap the victim on the spine board. And imagine you have an incredibly buoyant spine board. And it takes a great effort to place the board slightly under the water and under the victim. You don’t want this. You want a board that will go under the water and under the victim easily. A really good board will have this capacity.
Also, make sure your spineboard had a warranty with it. A good manufacture, if he or she believes in the spineboard, will be warranted for a lifetime.
