A Guide to Prone Positioning & Equipment

There’s nothing more important than keeping your patients safe–and safety starts with quality medical equipment!

Prone positioning devices are used to safely secure and situate patients in a downward-facing position, this increases access to the dorsal area and allows surgeons and medical staff to easily access the neck, colon, tendons, back, and other abaxial surfaces.

  • Reduced risks of lung-injury (ventilator-induced)
  • Efficient gas exchange in the lungs and less lung compression.
  • Better oxygen flow and heart function.
  • Improved drainage for diseased lungs.

Moving patients into the prone position can be complicated for medical professionals. The use of prone positioning equipment eliminates the physical strain of moving patients and offers more support, comfort, and safety for patients undergoing procedures.

The prone position is achieved through the use of special prone positioning devices. These devices ensure security and comfort for both patients and surgical staff.
