I am evaluating the Back Raft and have a question about using it with a head immobilizer. We use the Multi-Grip Head Immobilizer pictured in the attachement. We place a folded towel over the headpiece of the Back Raft to maintain neutral c-spine. After doing this and sliding the immobilizer between it and the patients head and inflating we have very little support for the head
left on the round immobilizer blocks. Any thoughts on this immobilizer or an alternative for use with the Back Raft.
I had a chance to use the BackRaft a lot last summer on a seasonal job. The service there used the old-fashioned reusable Ferno headblocks in the durable vinyl. Didn't experience any problems with that combination. Seems that the good ol'-fashioned towel rolls will do well also. In all honesty, towel rolls are my immobilization method of choice, I have yet to see a commercial device that does as well.
