Lamperd Less Lethal has developed and is manufacturing a special Extraction Shield for first responders which can help protect them from contamination when they handle potentially COVID19 Coronavirus infected persons in close quarters such as police vehicles, ambulances or small rooms. The Extraction Shield is also designed to afford strong physical protection from violent or unstable persons. All manufacturing is done at Lamperd’s extensive and well equipped facility in Ontario, Canada.
The Extraction Shield is ideally sized and shaped to help prevent broken ribs and other common injuries or bodily fluid contamination while transferring unstable persons to and from police cars, ambulances or other tight spaces. The product is made of strong, clear polycarbonate to allow clear vision and is equipped with padded handles. Especially important is the arm handle which will flexibly move in and out in response to pressure to help prevent broken ribs as can happen with other rigid handle shields. The Lamperd Extraction Shield has a total weight of only 3.5 lbs and can be employed using only one arm.
