Telford, United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 25, 2011 -- In their ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality pre-hospital emergency equipment, Bound Tree Medical Europe Ltd have released a new product to help those who have been subject to pelvic injury.
The Lewis Pelvic Applicator can play a vital part in safely extricating casualties from vehicle accidents and other incidents in which pelvic fractures may have occurred. The applicator provides fast and safe pelvic stabilisation, usually in under twenty seconds, and ensures minimal movement of the casualty, aiding pain relief and prevention of further injury.
The applicator can be applied prior to extrication from a car or lorry, or whilst the patient is on a long board. It complements existing pelvic supports or slings and when loaded, it is slid under the patient, facilitating pelvic stabilisation direct to skin, avoiding the need for removal on arrival at the emergency department.
Pelvic fractures are common in high-energy impacts, such as motor vehicle or cycling accidents, or falls from height, and can lead to severe uncontrollable haemorrhaging or even death. Because the pelvis cradles so many internal organs, it is vital any possible injury is treated quickly and correctly.
A spokesperson for Bound Tree Medical Europe Ltd said: "We are delighted to announce the release of a new product - the Lewis Pelvic Applicator. This innovative piece of equipment will ensure the very best care for those unfortunate enough to have been the victim of pelvic injury. It is vitally important that those who have been injured receive the very best care and I am confident that this product will provide that. We have a long history of supplying the very best in pre-hospital emergency equipment, and we are proud to add this product to our already extensive catalogue."
