First aid for sports

We've put together a quick guide for everything you need to know about first aid in sporting industries.

Top picks - Sport first aid kits 

As community sport is returning again after the summer holidays, it's important to make sure you're prepared for those unexpected injuries. A good sports first aid kit will provide immediate treatment for common sports injuries like grazes, cuts, sprains and strains. The type of sport will also determine how many kits are required, and what other first aid equipment is suitable.

Backboards and Stretchers

Backboards and stretchers are important to have on hand for sports that have the possibility of more serious injuries like neck and spinal cord injuries. Backboards are rigid and designed for immobilising and transporting a person with a suspected spinal cord injury, while a stretcher is flexible and designed for transporting an injured person who is not suspected to have a spinal cord injury.
