How does it work

Ergotrics is a Med-Tech company specialized in positioning and moving patients with compressed air. We design and produce inflatable medical devices, which allow optimal positioning of patients in hospitals. We design our products with special attention given to ease of use and hygiene. By using compressed air instead of manual force, we want to provide better support for patients without ergonomic burden for the healthcare worker.

Our Solutions

We design our products based on our customer’s needs.


Inflatable Board for the Operating Room

The ideal tool for tilting patients. An ergonomic breakthrough in hospital care.


Inflatable Prone Support for the Operating Room

The world's first inflatable support for surgery in prone position.


Inflatable Support for Multiple Applications

Inflatables in different shapes and variations to support and position body parts during any surgical or medical procedure and examination.


Inflatable Prone Ventilation

World’s first inflatable support for prone ventilation of ARDS patients.



Flexible mat for lateral repositioning (left and right) of patients every two-four hours.



A specially designed air pistol to safely inflate and deflate the Ergotrics devices.

Head Prone Support

Head Prone Support

Ideal head support for optimal positioning of the head and neck when patient is in prone position.


Morpheroll to make any (hospital) bed flexible

Inflatable cylinder for reposition a body part of a patient laying in bed.

The power of compressed air

Ergotrics specialises in positioning and moving patients with compressed air. We design and produce inflatable positioning cushions, based on our knowledge of anatomy and physiology.

Optimal Positioning

The Ergotrics cushions are designed as a mirror image of the human skeleton. In this way, they supports the ribcage and pelvis, while leaving the abdomen free.

Better Ergonomics

Using compressed air instead of manual labor is an ergonomic breakthrough for the hospital staff. 90% of our users say that no or minimal force is required to position patients in prone position. 

X-Ray Transmission

The Ergotrics solutions are fully X-ray radiolucent, which facilitates X-ray applications. By inflating and deflating during the operation, you can make your rigid operating table in the hybrid operating room flexible again.

Optimal Hygiene

Corona (COVID-19) has heightened the world’s awareness of attention to hygiene. Ergotrics develops disposable, single patient use and reusable inflatables depending on the infection risk.

What our clients say about us

“We can now easily reposition the patient alone. Before we needed two, sometimes three nurses.  The advantage of the Morphemat for the patient? Its back is supported from neck to legs and not at two points.  See our video testimonial”

Johan Jespers

Nurse Intensive Care Unit

“The IPV is a super product. Thank you for your beautiful and practical solution to ventilate patients comfortably in the prone position.”

Team Intensive Care

AZ St-Maarten Belgium

“This method is simple, more ergonomic and more hygienic than the ways and materials with which one is familiar today. The position of the patient was correct and stable.”

OR Team

UZ Leuven (Belgium)

“One day these medical devices will become mandatory.”


UZ Gent (Belgium)

“With the Ergotrics inflatable prone positioning system you can work much faster, more hygienically and healthier for the staff, both when the patient is transferred to the prone position and during the positioning itself.”

Prof Robert Pflugmacher,

Universitätsklinikum Bonn (Germany)

“The ergonomic advantages of inflatable positioning devices are clear. Furthermore we think that the optimal positioning also will result in less intra-abdominal pressure and therefore less venous pressure, better operating conditions and possibly less intraoperative blood loss. We will investigate this further.”
