Ambu Head Wedge (Head Immobilisation)

A revolution in design, the unique Ambu Head Wedge immobilises a patient's head instantly and effectively when placed on a back board. It is applied easily and quickly in just four simple steps. With its innovative construction the Head Wedge enables a perfect fit to the patient in one go, saving time at the scene when seconds count. Made of plastic, it is superior to any cardboard product; there is no need to worry about bad weather because the Head Wedge is even efficient on wet back boards.

The Ambu Head Wedge is fully disposable eliminating all risks associated with cross infection and re-assembly and it is fully adjustable to fit all sizes, from children to adults. The Head Wedge is radiolucent, CT and MRI compatible so a patient can be effectively immobilised during examination.

The strong, self-adhesive head strap ensures a secure hold without any discomfort to the patient. It can be stored completely flat, saving valuable storage space and it fits all known backboards.
