The Transporter® Fluid Resistant Disposable Backboards are packaged in boxes of 5 and take up little space since they store flat. (Pediatric packaging of 5 boards = 58" L x 28" W x 6" H). When needed simply pull the zip tabs on the back of the boards and in less than 30 seconds a fully configured backboard is in place and ready to go to work. There is no glue or tape to dry out and fail over time. These boards are significantly lower in costs than all other backboards.
