Demonstration Video

Polo Custom Products manufactured two different Chemical Protective Patient Wraps for the United States Department of Defense. For over six years, Polo Custom Products worked with USAMRAA to design the second-generation Patient Wrap product shown here. In a chemical warfare environment, this product is used to protect uncontaminated or decontaminated litter patients from chemical agent exposure during movement through contaminated areas. The Chemical Protective Patient Wrap can also be customized for other military uses, or for civilian hospital and first responder use.

Case Study

Polo Custom Products provides the Chemical Protective Patient Wrap in a complete kit that contains all components.

Kit components include

  • Patient Wraps
  • PAPR units
  • PAPR hose
  • Filters
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Position chargers

The Patient Wrap requires both sewing and heat sealing operations that Polo Custom Products does at our Louisville, MS facility. Polo Custom Products sources all Patient Wrap materials and non-core components for the kit from our qualified vendor partners. All components are brought into our facility, assembled into individual kits, and shipped for immediate use or storage. The Patient Wrap has a shelf life of ten years.

The Patient Wrap uses lightweight materials including a carbon impregnated permeable top sheet and impermeable bottom sheet, which are unaffected by all body fluids. A person can remain in the Patient Wrap for up to six hours. A PAPR device is incorporated to provide positive pressure inside the wrap and eliminate the buildup of carbon dioxide. The Patient Wrap is disposable and intended for single use only.

Other features of the Patient Wrap include

  • Zippered closure to access the patient and allow patient extraction from inside or outside the Wrap.
  • Transparent window for observation and communication with the patient.
  • A quick deployable face shield is included to keep the Wrap’s top cover and window off the patient’s face.
  • Integrated cardholder for Patient Evacuation Tag (DD Form 1380) or Field Medical Card (DD Form 602).
  • Two ports to provide a protective entry way for intravenous and respiratory tubing.
  • Sleeves attached along each side with hand holes for litter poles or to serve as a field expedient litter without any additional components.
