Inflatable Prone Support IPS

Fast, simple, ergonomic and safe!

World’s first inflatable, disposable prone support for surgery in prone position.

Surgeons and aneasthesists in training are teached to avoid venous congestion and pressure on nerves, but proning is one of the most heavy position switches for nursing staff. By mirroring the human skeleton and variations in size, the IPS supports the rib cage and pelvis while allowing the soft tissue and abdomen to hang freely. This reduces the risk of bedsores, reduces Intra-Abdominal Pressure (IAP) and prevents venous congestion. The use of compressed air instead of manual labour is an ergonomic breakthrough in the OR.

“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.”
