Advanced EMS Designs

Retired Orlando firefighter-paramedic Scott Neusch knew firsthand that disinfection procedures failed to eradicate all the dangerous microbes left on the backboards that are used to transport patients, who often leave behind blood and other body fluids. Neusch and three partners, Joe McCluan, Mark Steinert and Scott McIntyre, formed Advanced EMS Designs and developed Board Armor, a disposable, non-porous sheath that prevents fluids from contaminating the backboard. Emergency crews can then replace the sheaths quickly, reducing turnaround time.
