Emergency spine immobilization device that can be used in extrication or in combination with human external cargo harnesses for hoist or rope operations.

The NEXT allows “extrication” maneuvers in confined spaces, ensuring quick immobilization of the patient’s spine in a neutral position.

NEXT can be configured in different ways and with different patient retention systems, allowing its use as a “Utility Emergency Board”. Its small size, weight characteristics and immobilization capacity in every environment and situation make the versatility of NEXT “Xclusive”. In combination with the self-adjustable “rescue triangle” harness, it is very easy and quick to operate in every environment with gloves or heavy clothing.
