Ferno PBX Spinal board
Designed specifically for lifeguards and operators, it provides significantly faster rescue times, improved safety, and reduces demands on staff. The innovation requires just two trained users to carry out a pool rescue for deck-level pools, and three trained users for freeboard pools (max freeboard depth 30cms) as opposed to the traditional four users. This means fewer lifeguards are drawn into a rescue, enabling them to continue to monitor other swimmers and perform key roles in a rescue situation. The versatile board can be used with or without a freeboard and at any depth. A rescue using the new Pool Extraction Board can be accomplished in as little as 90 seconds.
The new board has also been designed to work around existing pool lifeguard techniques for seamless training and integration through the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ).
