APLS Body Guard

APLS Body Guard — Protects Service Providers and the Deceased

APLS Body Guard is a disposable absorbent body bag that protects service providers as well as the deceased.

The bag's thermal seals, finished edges, treated nylon backing and a fluid-resistant zipper create a leak-proof inner chamber that protects service providers from bacteria-laden body fluids.

Constructed with a highly absorbent cellulose core that retains up to four liters of fluid, APLS Body Guard is designed to work independently or with a stretcher for staging, storing, and transporting deceased personnel.

APLS Body Guard is also available with a surface-active agent for odor control.
