The O.R. Comfort line of patented patient positioning devices is designed to help anaesthesia staff position and reposition a patient optimally during a surgical procedure, while also providing a means of maintaining the comfort and satisfaction of the patient. A three-way stopcock allows the air pressure to be increased, decreased or held at a desired level so the patient does not have to be manually moved or lifted.

Shoulder-Float 

The Shoulder-Float™ Adjustable Axillary Support Device is designed to relieve a patient’s shoulder discomfort during surgical procedures performed in the lateral decubitus position. The device can be adjusted throughout a procedure to maintain an even weight distribution, bringing dramatic improvement in patient comfort without having to manually lift or move the patient.

The device is useful during total hip replacement, thoracotomy, shoulder arthroscopy and kidney surgery. It can benefit mildly sedated patients undergoing epidural anesthesia and patients undergoing lengthy procedures. The device is adjustable as needed to achieve adequate decompression and to account for changing pressure on the brachial plexus and axillary artery.

Pelvic-Tilt

The Pelvic-Tilt™ Adjustable Displacement Device is an inflatable “pillow” designed to lift a patient’s hip between 20-40 degrees during surgical procedures. This is useful in obstetrics to avoid compression of the vena cava and/or aorta during cesarean sections and deliveries in the supine position. The device is also practical during kidney surgery and surgery on the side of the leg or ankle.

The non-inflatable flap is placed underneath the patient to prevent a lateral shifting of the device. The inflatable “pillow” section is positioned under the hip to be angled, then inflated to the desired lift using the squeeze bulb or an optional tourniquet adapter.
