Emergency Immobilizers, Whole Body, Pediatric

Definition : Whole-body emergency immobilizers designed for maximum restriction of movement and/or immobilization of a child's entire body. These immobilizers usually consist of rigid structures (typically a backboard) with a size appropriate for use in children that permit the rigid attachment of the entire body. The board is frequently made of light metallic or hard plastic radiolucent materials and either includes or is compatible with head immobilizers. Pediatric whole-body immobilizers are mainly used after traumatic injuries as they allow for easy transportation and/or diagnosis, and ease of access to radiographic procedures.
