The spine board is made of fiberglass or fiberglass-reinforced plastic. The main advantage of this kind of material is that it can be easily folded and molded into any shape. It can be used to hold the spine and protect it from damage.
It’s a fairly simple setup: there are two parts, one for each side, with two holes opposite each other in the middle. It basically consists of a long piece (like a tablecloth) with a hole drilled through it. At the two opposite sides of the board, you attach one end to the table (or sometimes a hardboard or some kind of support) and then fasten the other end to your patient or another part of your equipment (which will support the patient). The whole thing is held together by screws, bolts, or rivets that pass through both pieces at different points on their lengthwise axis.
The most common problem when using this kind of system is that during exercise, air bubbles can get trapped in between the table and your patient as they exert pressure on each other – especially when you are holding them in different positions. Also, if you have a hard surface on either side (a soft surface would not work well because it might start squeaking), then in order to avoid air bubbles getting trapped between them you have to adjust the angle at which you open up those holes so that their edges touch one another – more on this later.
The folding spine board is made from fiberglass or fiberglass-reinforced plastic. It is a kind of material that can be easily folded and molded into any shape. It can be used to hold the spine and protect it from damage, for example when moving a patient on a stretcher, or when holding an object that needs to be kept from falling off the stretcher (such as a bag of medicine).
This type of material is great for moving patients on stretchers, but it’s also very useful in other applications such as holding bags of medicine or other stuff. You can use it to hold objects or parts of them while still keeping them stable on a patient’s back. You can also use this material while they are moving around their legs (and putting weight on their feet) because it absorbs some of the impact during their movements. It’s best used with inflatable medical devices so they don’t get damaged too much during transport.
The spine board is a piece of equipment that has its shape and location defined by the patient. This can be done by using some kind of padding, but it is also possible to move a patient on a folding spine board freely.
The right way to use the spine board depends on how the patient moves; if he or she walks towards you, for example, you will use the spine board in such a way that it does not interfere with his or her movements.
It is also important that you do not lie on the patient so that his or her weight remains relatively evenly distributed throughout their body. Lying down on the spine board can cause your patients to fall off, so it is important to keep them in an upright position as much as possible.
If you are moving your patient across different surfaces, then it is good to have a pair of floor mats or even carpet underfoot.
A good way to see how your patient would move on this kind of board is by trying out different positions yourself. Ask him or her where they would like to go next and follow them around while they are there, doing up-and-down movements and then turning around and around again.
The safest thing to do when moving patients who cannot move themselves (such as infants) is try standing behind them and being careful not to get too close—this can be dangerous for both of you! We also don't want our patients lying flat on their back either (to avoid spinal cord injuries).
