First Response Environments
First response environments, such as the interior of an ambulance, are designed to include everything needed for devastating emergencies. In these cases, most patients’ immune systems are weakened so dramatically due to the trauma that something as small as an airborne pathogen can be fatal. These pathogens are often contracted through the exterior environment, an unclean interior environment, such as an unsanitary seat belt, or through bacteria that is brought into the environment by outdoor shoes.
Industry authorities recommend that first responders should focus on strategies to prevent this transmission, including environmental cleaning, appropriate sterilization, and disinfection. The Seat Belt Pro and the Mat Pro are the only products on the market that would help prevent spreading bacteria and infection, using the protective seat belt film, and the antimicrobial mat, which will kill pathogens and keep patients safe.
