WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. (June 8, 2012) --- Advanced EMS Designs, Inc. in Winter Springs plans to showcase its newly patented health care product at the upcoming EMS World EXPO trade show in New Orleans.
Retired firefighter and paramedic Scott Neusch, who heads Advanced EMS Designs, said the company’s product, Board Armor, will save lives.
Board Armor is a disposable Tyvek sheath that covers backboards EMS workers use when transporting accident victims. Those backboards are often contaminated with blood and other bodily fluids, and even though they are cleaned, cracks and scratches can still harbor bacteria and other contaminants, Neusch explained.
After the patient is safely transported, the Board Armor is disposed of sanitarily.
Its use prevents body fluids from contaminating the backboard, prevents any contaminants on the backboard from infecting the patient, and reduces turnaround time so that EMTs and paramedics can get back on the road saving lives faster.
It’s a simple solution. It won’t make us millionaires anytime soon, but it will help a lot of patients and that’s what we set out to do,” said Neusch.
Neusch said his colleagues Joe McCluan, Mark Steinert, and Scott McIntyre formed Advanced EMS Designs to market Board Armor.
The firm is currently developing additional solutions for first responders
Advanced EMS Designs is a client company of the University of Central Florida Business Incubator in Winter Springs.
