Why Positioning Matters
No great work of architecture can stand without a solid foundation, yet few of us give much thought to the foundation of patient positioning. A rock-solid foundation adds precision to every aspect of the procedure.
A happy staff helps to make a surgeon productive. With innovative devices that are easier and faster to set up without a need for tape, sandbags, or special care to make it work. Positioning is accomplished quicker, increasing turnover and reducing the need for additional staff. Rock-solid positioning also reduces the number of hands on the patient, and the potential for infection that each of those hands carry.
A major factor in making positioning easier is the care taken in any contact with the patient. Protecting the patient from pressure injury is a top priority. The patient interface is designed to be smooth, rounded, and with the broadest distribution of pressure we could create. Padding is easy, and pads are purposefully engineered to eliminate wrinkles and offer unfailing support.
