The Shock Doctor Eject Helmet Removal System aids in the safe removal of helmets when neck and spinal injuries are suspected. Pulling the helmet off a crash victim can, in seconds, cause further trauma to the neck and cervical spine resulting in serious debilitating, and permanent damage. The Eject Helmet Removal System was designed to aid in the safer removal of a helmet by pushing the helmet off the head after the upper spine has been immobilized.
The concept is simple: a tightly folded air bladder is inserted into the roof of the helmet, and a air tubing is routed behind the helmet lining and positioned at the base of the helmet for easy access. To use, a small hand pump is attached to the air tube. As the air bladder is inflated, the helmet is gently pushed off the wearer's head.
The device is so simple and ingenious, it has already been mandated by the AMA (American Motorcyclist Association) and the IRL (Indy Racing League)!
The Eject EMT/First Responder Helmet Removal Kit includes a wand that allows the Eject System to be manually installed into the helmet at the scene. Only rescue personnel trained in spine immobilization should activate Eject after reading full instructions and practice. Do not activate Eject if you suspect an underlying head injury or if there is gravel, glass or other foreign material in the helmet.
