An important phase of any surgery is the accommodation of the patient on the operating table. In fact correct positioning reduces the risk of ulcer formation, pressure sores and nerve injuries during the operation.
Furthermore, the patient who goes through local or total anesthesia gradually loses consciousness, motor skills or at least sensitivity to touch and pain.
He is therefore unable to perceive and react to potentially harmful external stimuli related to the position in which he is placed on the operating table or caused involuntarily and unknowingly by the health and social care staff: friction, rubbing, excessive and prolonged pressure, shocks, burns.
Therefore it is advisable to choose appropriate positioning devices that ensure correct pressure distribution and maintain the patient in the proper position troughout the intervention.
Reliable, efficient and not much expensive, the positioners are specially designed tools to prevent the onset of injuries and to relieve and stabilize any injuries already present in the patient undergoing surgery.
Positioners with differentiated density are made up of two layers: the upper layer is in contact with the skin and is used for transpiration, absorption of fluids and pressure reduction; the lower layer redistributes the body weight over the surface and thus reduces pressure during operations and prolonged hospital stays.
The semi-cylindrical positioner pair, thanks to its curved format, can be used for positioning and protection of numerous parts of the body (ankles, pelvic cavity, chest, neck, etc.) in different types of surgical operations in supine, prone or lateral position.
