Inflatable Board IBO

Fast, simple, ergonomic and safe!

An ergonomic breakthrough in hospital care.

Turning patients from supine to prone position remains a technically and ergonomically difficult task, especially with patients weighting over 80kg (175lb). A patient under general anaesthesia should not be tilted by one person alone. The Inflatable Board (IBO) is the ideal device for the safe and controlled tilting of patients.

A clear ergonomic breakthrough in hospital care.

The IBO is reusable and tested for 250 applications and is provided with a pressure sensor. The sensor counts automatically how often the IBO has been used and displays the usages with the LED lights. A handy feature to ensure safe use, also in case of regular shift changes.

OR Team

“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.”

Dr. F. van Eijs, M.D, Ph.D.

Anesthetist, ETZ The Netherlands

“With the IBO and IPS we can prepare the patient for surgery in prone position with 2 nurses less. This is a great advantage for efficiency in the operating theatre”
