EZ LIFT Rescue Systems designs, manufactures, sells, and services patient immobilization and lift systems that incorporate a unique patented lift and transport system designed to minimize the torque to the back. Founded in Park City Utah in 2011, EZ LIFT Rescue Systems’ mission is to provide breakthrough technology that reduces injuries to EMS Rescuers.
The EZ LIFT Rescue System is a reinvention of the traditional backboard. With traditional backboards, rescuers lift from the ground, a position that puts rescuers at risk for injury from muscle strain and often, even more severe injuries to the lower back. The EZ LIFT Rescue system uses a patented handle design that allows EMS rescuers to lift from a safe lifting position near the knees. This eliminates the lift from the floor, dramatically reducing torque by more than 50% on the lower back where most injuries occurs.
The EZ LIFT Rescue Systemwas invented by Park City resident Dr. Robert Heck, an emergency room doctor with over two decades of experience. Dr. Heck, having witnessed scores of back injuries sustained by EMS Rescuers, developed the EZ LIFT Rescue System to solve the pervasive problem of on-the-job back injuries caused by lifting heavy patients from the ground.
