Title: Padded spinal board coverslip

Abstract: The following invention describes a padded coverslip for a long spinal board. The padding may be composed of a foam core that has a waterproof covering. The shape of the pad may vary to allow it to fit onto any adult size long spinal board. Additional sizes of the pad are also included for pediatric spinal boards. Additional integrated padding may be incorporated at the head of the pad in order to elevate the head of the patient to an anatomically neutral position. Emanating from the sides of the padding is an elastic coverslip that would wrap around a spinal board, securing the pad to the board. Openings within the coverslip would correspond with handhold slots along the sides of the spinal boards.
