Inflatable Prone Ventilation IPV

Fast, simple, ergonomic and safe!

World’s first inflatable support for prone ventilation in the ICU

Scientific studies highlight the benefits of optimised PEEP and long recruitment for ARDS patients ventilated in alternating supine/prone position, but it is one of the most challenging and ergonomically demanding position changes for nurses. The IPV (Inflatable Prone Ventilation) consists of a pelvic and thoracic pillow allowing the patient to lie in prone position with a free hanging abdomen. Prone ventilation allows for better oxygenation and thus maximum lung ventilation and oxygen absorption in the patient’s blood. The unique selling point of the Ergotrics innovation is the use of compressed air instead of manual labour, which is an ergonomic breakthrough in the ICU.

What our clients say about us

“We can now easily reposition the patient alone. Before we needed two, sometimes three nurses.  The advantage of the Morphemat for the patient? Its back is supported from neck to legs and not at two points.  See our video testimonial”

“This method is simple, more ergonomic and more hygienic than the ways and materials with which one is familiar today. The position of the patient was correct and stable.”

“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.”
