"Thank you for discovering a need for backboard padding and taking the
initiative to develop the "Turley Backboard Pad". Our department treasures
this multi-tasking pad using it as: a cold pack, heat pad or as padding on
all our boarded patients."
Trust me.... our patients appreciate the comfort
given by this pad during those long boarded times in the ER.

"The Turley Backboard Pad is a no brainer. Every patient that comes into
the ED on a backboard complains of pain from the board. Once the pad is
place under them they stop complaining. We also do not have to worry
about pressure sores developing while under our care, then not being
compensated for that care, because of a preventable injury. Any patient
placed on a backboard should have the Turley Backboard Pad under them

"This pad would have saved the back of my head from a nasty pressure sore!
I recently was involved in a head on collision and the ambulance
company's back board was used without any padding! You ambulance
companies and hospitals would be well advised to make sure your patients
have these because they are here and are much needed! There is no need
for law suit, just use the Padding!"

"I have had the misfortune of being on a backboard twice. The first time
was with the Turley Backboard Pad and I was totally comfortable and warm.
The second time after being hit by a car, was absolutely horrible. I did
not realize the first time how much the backboard hurt and I was freezing
on a hot day. The backboard pad hurt so much I focused on that pain
instead of what hurt in my belly. I told everyone from the fire
department and at the ER they needed that comfy, warm gel pad. I hope I
never end up on a backboard again, but if I do I hope to God they have the
Turley Backboard Pad."
