    OPPE is a project initiated by Dr Paul Depauw, neurosurgeon at the Neurosurgical Science Center in Tilburg (ETZ hospital) and founder of Ergotrics. He studies IAP (Intra Abdominal Pressure) and developed a set of products that position patients quickly, easily, ergonomically, hygienically and safely. The products received CE-certificate in June 2019 and are sold in several European countries at this moment.


    The OPPE project is subsidized by VLAIO and wants to test the certified devices in 10 different hospitals in 5 different countries. In each hospital we position 2 – 5 patients for testing. It is not a scientifically study, we only want to get user feedback from the surgeons and hospital staff.
