9 MAIN REASONS FOR CHOOSING THE SurgiPOD POSITIONING DEVICE FOR YOUR HOSPITAL.

There are a number of advantages for adopting the SurgiPOD patient positioning devices into your hospital. Please consider what devices you are currently using to support your patients and compare this with the main features of the SurgiPOD positioning device.
 
1. POSITIVELY LOCK THE PATIENT INTO THE DESIRED POSITION.
The multi-positioning device can positively lock patients into almost any position required by the surgeon.The quick release mechanism can be adjusted through the sterile drapes without compromising sterility and without lifting the patient.
 
2. ELIMINATE THE OCCURRENCE OF CROSS INFECTION.
By the use of SINGLE USE gel pads fitted to the end of the SurgiPOD positioning device.
 
3. MORE FLEXIBILITY ON THE OPERATING TABLE TO SUPPORT OBESE PATIENTS.
As obesity is an increasing problem within society the device can be setup into virtually any position around the operating table to cater for these patients.
 
4. SAFETY TO PATIENTS AT ALL TIMES.
The Device provides a positive locking action in all positions.There is no necessity to tape or strap patients to the operating table.
 
5. SAFETY FOR THE OPERATING THEATRE PERSONNEL.   
Reduction of the OH & S issues related to lifting anesthetised patients on operating tables.
 
6. EMERGENCY REPOSITIONING.
In the event of cardiac arrest the patient can be repositioned in seconds from lateral to supine by simply operating the quick release handle and moving the positioning arm under the table.
 
7. FASTER SET UP TIMES.
The device is stowed unobtrusively under the table and can be quickly set up to position patients into virtually any position on the operating table.
 
8. REDUCE THE INCIDENCE OF SKIN DAMAGE.
The specially designed gel pad provides a very even pressure distribution between the patient and the pad. This results in good blood flow under the pad reducing the risk of pressure ulcers and skin tears.
 
9. CONNECT OTHER DEVICES TO THE END OF POSITIONING ARM.
The quick connect coupling on the end of the positioning arm allows for other devices to be quickly fitted to increase the versatility of the positioning arm. These devices can be pelvic bone positioning plates, hip positioning devices, arm boards, retractors, head rests and anything that requires an adjustable rigid mounting platform.
 
The use of these devices in your operating theatres will minimise the rate of cross contamination associated with the conventional positioning devices and reusable vinyl support pads. The impact of these infections has a profound effect on patient stays, hospital income and patient turnover.
