mat consists of a red nylon shroud bonded to a flexible
polycarbonate backboard. It will glide over most surfaces including
carpets, concrete, bitumen, vinyl and grass.
The mat is designed with safety in mind
for both the passenger and rescuer.
The passenger is securely held on the
mat by three Velcro straps and a foot pocket, allowing the passenger
to be safely moved around.
The passenger could in theory be moved by one person in an emergency
however we strongly recommend that a minimum of two people are used
for evacuation under normal circumstances. Two people should be the
absolute minimum for training purposes and should be appropriate for
the size and weight of the passenger.
The mat is light in weight and stored in a
compact bag ready to be deployed at a moment's notice and can be
used in almost any environment such as a bedroom, classroom, on a
corridor or even in a bathroom.
The mat is now available in two sizes, the larger
The mat is also suitable for paediatric use. The three strap
design allows for the top strap to be used by the rescuer
to ensure full control of the head and torso of the smaller patient
whilst ensuring correct posture
is maintained by the rescuer.
It is also possible to transfer someone from a
wheelchair onto the mat relatively easily. This is done in the same
way as for the Ski Pad - see:
Evacuation and manual handling training with the
AlbacMat can also be provided.
