XTRA® Backboard

X-Ray Translucent, Rigid, Affordable. The XTRA backboard’s patented design provides the optimal combination of rigidity and x-ray translucence. Other modern backboards have been designed on the basis of x-ray translucence instead of rigidity, at the expense of patient safety.

100% x-ray translucence

XTRA has been designed to provide 100% x-ray translucence while maintaining the necessary rigidity to protect the patient from further injury during transport.

Lightweight, Easily Carried

At 72″ long x 16″ wide x 1.85″ deep, and weighing just 15.25 pounds, the XTRA backboard will fit into any standard ambulance storage compartment, and is easy to carry with its 18 large hand holds.

Easy Cleaning and Disinfection

The smooth HDPE surface allows for easy cleaning and disinfecting, while the fully sealed one-piece construction of the XTRA makes it fully fluid resistant.


The XTRA will float a 200 lb. adult, and has been shown in tests to withstand a distributed weight load in excess of 1,000 pounds without permanent structural failure.


The XTRA backboard can be ordered with large-format custom graphics (22″ x 7.5″ area) to proudly display the name and logo of your service, and distinguish your boards from other services. Allied has no setup charges for custom graphics.

Made in the USA

The XTRA backboard meets national and international guidelines for immobilization. It is compliant with OSHA and ISO guidelines for immobilization.
