Safe Patient Handling
Turning and repositioning patients can cumbersome, dangerous for caregivers, and lead to pressure ulcers to positions if not done properly and regularly. The Prevalon™ TAP system was designed to help solve this very problem.
In a surgical environment, proper patient positioning in the operating room ensures the best positive outcome for surgical patients. Maximizing patient comfort, managing patient perfusion, and maintaining clinical access to the surgical site are just a few of the reasons to ensure patients are in the proper position during surgery.
Gel versus Foam Positioners
Disposable foam positioners are an economical way to ensure patients are positioned properly. Gel positioners are more expensive initially, but intended to be reused over time. Patient positioners are designed to protect certain portions of the body during surgical procedure. For example, the ulnar nerve protector prevent ulnar nerve compression during surgery.
