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.

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.

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.”
