Contrerra is proud to offer the most advanced vacuum immobilizer available today. It is well known that Vacuum mattress technology is the state of the art for patient protection and comfort. Conterra has partnered with Bo Renberg, the original inventor of the Vacuum mattress to offer this unique device. It is being used in the harshest conditions all over the world. We recently even shipped one to Tibet!
The VSB sports many unique features that are just not found on other vacuum mattresses. The ergonomically designed VSB is built with special polyethylene beads that will not break down over time like the polystyrene used in other brands. In addition, the beads are compartmentalized with a series of baffles, which means you will never have to spread out or distribute the beads when applying the device. The straps and handles are movable , and removable for replacement or cleaning. In fact, the VSB can even be placed in a commercial washer or extractor for cleaning. The VSB has a built in pelvic binding system that is quickly movable to align with the patient’s pelvis. Lastly, the valve system is a marvel of simplicity, just plug the hose in, pull a vacuum , and pull the hose out.
This fine immobilization tool is built in USA and is guaranteed against defects in materials or workmanship. Even though these tools are built to the highest standards in the industry, we cannot guarantee against leakage or holes caused during use, because of the nature of pre hospital care (so keep them out of the rose bushes!).
We offer the VSB in two sizes; 7 ft model for regular street use, and the lighter 6ft model for use where weight and size are at a premium, such as SAR and flight use. (choose and order the Cube or Long storage case separately to match your storage needs)
These splints are built for us right here in USA by Bo Renberg of Medtech Sweden. Bo is a pioneer of vacuum immobilization technology, and we are proud of our partnership with him.
