Ergotrics’ positioning cushions help you to position patients correctly in the operating room. 100% hygienically and with less staff.


Fast, simple, ergonomic, hygienic and safe.

How do we do this?

Simple: with the use of compressed air and specially designed positioning cushions for single use (100% hygienic). The correct position of your patient is extremely important for a successful operation and to avoid post-operative complications. Our cushions make it possible to prone without manual power.

In the video you’ll see how simple it can be.

The advantages

by mirroring the human skeleton.

by positioning on air.

by safe use of compressed air.

by single (patient) use: disposable cushions

How does it work?

“The surgeons, anesthesiologists and nurses involved consider the new method to be simplemore ergonomic and more hygienic than the procedure and materials currently used. In addition, they indicate that the patient’s position after proning is correct and stable.”

– Quote from article ‘Ergotrics-testing in the OKa of UZ Leuven (Belgium)’, by CrossCare


Thanks to the Ergotrics system for repositioning in prone position, you work faster, more hygienically, and in a healthier way for the staff; whether the patient is repositioned in prone position or during positioning.

The ergonomic advantages are obvious, but we believe that optimal positioning will lead to a decrease in venous disorders and blood loss, and will allow us to have a better view of the area to be operated on. We want to continue to study this issue.
