KED-Kendrick Extrication Device

The Kendrick Extrication Device (K.E.D.) – a pivotal tool that we, as emergency responders, rely on for ensuring the safe and efficient extrication of patients, particularly from auto accidents and other confined spaces. The K.E.D. excels in immobilizing the torso, head, and neck, minimizing the risks of further injury during the extrication process.

What sets the K.E.D. apart is its two-part, wrap-around design. This design not only facilitates easy application with horizontal flexibility but also ensures vertical rigidity, providing maximum support to the spine, neck, and head throughout the extrication procedure. As we navigate the challenges of emergency situations, this flexibility and rigidity combination proves invaluable.

One of the standout features is the ability to perform X-rays or advanced life support procedures with the K.E.D. in place. This not only expedites the diagnostic process but also underscores its versatility in accommodating various medical interventions. The built-in handles are a game-changer, allowing us to maintain a firm grip on both the patient and the K.E.D. as a single unit, streamlining the extrication process.

Understanding the diverse scenarios we face, the K.E.D. boasts a general use load limit of 550 lb, ensuring reliability in various emergency situations. For technical rescues, including one-person lifts for vertical and confined space rescue, the device maintains a load limit of 330 lb, highlighting its adaptability to different rescue scenarios.

In the unpredictable realm of emergency response, the Kendrick Extrication Device (ked device) is not just a tool; it’s a dependable ally that enhances our ability to provide swift and secure extrication, safeguarding both rescuers and patients alike.
