Float Rescue Board - be ready
Floating is very safe, but we must not be complacent.
As the number of float sessions increases worldwide, we must be aware that adverse events can occur. It is impossible to do CPR or defibrillation to someone in a float tank. Float center attendants will have difficulty and potential back injury when they attempt to remove an unresponsive person from a float tank.
The Floataway Rescue Board is a due diligence safety item. It will help a rescuer to pull a non-responsive or unconscious person through the door or over the rim of any float tank. It has been tested and developed to be simple fast and effective.
The board is made of very tough polythene and has slots to house a strap. The strap is long enough to allow the rescuer an upright, back straight posture while pulling the floater out. It provides protection for the floater’s head, neck and back while sliding them over the edge toward the floor. Once out, CPR etc. can be done immediately. Time in these situations is critical.
The Rescue Board should be used in regular staff training exercises. This is important. Training for adverse events is an element of due diligence.The board can be used for any non-responsive or paralyzed floater covering heart attack, stroke, choking, fainting or other causes of unconsciousness.
The rescuer should always call the emergency services before starting the rescue.
The world's first water Float Rescue Board was launched at the Float Conference in Portland, Oregon in August 2018.
Sales are now beeing taken through our Floataway USA office.
