Basic principles

 

Positioning and moving with compressed air

 

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

 

 

Adhesion

 

The positioning cushions can be adhered to the patient making sure that no shift of support points occurs when changing the patient’s position.

Hygiene

 

The adherable, inflatable positioning cushions are for single use (disposable). This is a hygienic solution for both patients and the medical team.

Safety valve

 

A specially designed safety valve makes it safe to use the compressed air available in hospitals and/or from a compressor.

Areas of application

Hospital care

Turning patients from back to front position (proning) is and always will be a technically difficult action. Perfectly positioning patients on their front has major consequences for operations and long-term ventilation in the intensive care unit (ICU).

Home care

The demand for home care is on the rise due to the ageing population and because dependants want to stay in their familiar surroundings as long as possible. In order to meet this demand innovations are required which may help home care nurses in their daily activities.

Veterinary medicine

From tumour resection in pets to cruciate ligament operations in sports horses. Surgery on animals is no longer an exception these days. Supporting these animals well during the procedure is quite a challenge.
