In an Emergency the Ski Pad is quickly removed from its wall mountable storage bag.
The patient can then be transferred on to the Ski Pad (this can be performed either from bed/floor/chair).
Place feet within the foot pocket. If pillows are available place these on the individuals leg and chest area (for comfort once strapped in).
Secure the individual in place on the pad using the seat belt style cross straps.
Using the end pulling handles the individual can be moved to a safe area. When going downstairs it is important to pull the individual feet first
