Rescue / Jump Cushion

The Inflatable Rescue Cushion (also known as a Jump Cushion or Air Cushion) is ideal for rescuing people from heights when a ladder can't be used.

The inflatable frame supports a cushion which is divided into two chambers. A person landing on the cushion causes it to temporarily deform, and thus absorb the force of the landing. On removing the person, the cushion recovers its form within a few seconds.
