    Alternative spinal immobilization?

    We avoid them in most cases, however, I had an incident recently where someone fell 15 feet into a lava tube. Fortunately, no injuries, but it got me thinking that a foldable board would have been nice for extrication had there been spinal injury.

    Carryalls don't provide stability unfortunately.

    Alternative spinal immobilization?

    @El Solis On top of a trauma kit, what options are out there for spinal immobilization in lieu of a backboard? Are there devices that fold up small enough to pack in a tote yet are long enough for a 6ft tall person and rigid enough to maintain immobilization?
