The Material Difference

Breathable open-cell material

The Pink Pad's unique material was developed and refined over a period of several years. Beyond preventing unwanted patient movement in steep Trendelenburg, the Pink Pad offers patients unparalleled skin protection. Unique softness, breathability, immersion, and envelopment characteristics protect against HAPI (Hospital Acquired Pressure Injury) formation. Optimally-balanced material properties are a leading reason why the Pink Pad has emerged as the clinically-preferred Trendelenburg positioning solution in top hospitals around the world.

Increase Safety with the Pink Pad

Prevent Patient Sliding

Prevent Patient Sliding

Safe patient positioning in steep Trendelenburg can only be achieved when patient sliding is eliminated. Doing so helps hospitals comply with CMS guidelines for avoiding positioning-related injuries and Never Events. The Pink Pad is the safest, most effective solution for reducing patient sliding in steep Trendelenburg; even for heavy, high-BMI patients.

Reduce HAPI Risk

Reduce HAPI Risk

The Pink Pad was designed specifically for direct-skin contact. Its open-cell structure is breathable, moisture wicking, insulative, soft-to-the-touch, immersive, and enveloping. Independent studies prove that the Pink Pad reduces erythema compared to other positioning solutions.1

No nerve injury

Eliminate Brachial Plexus Injury Risk

The Pink Pad is clinically proven to reduce post-operative pain in surgical patients.2 It functions without placing pressure on the head, neck, or shoulders; thereby eliminating the risk of preventable nerve injuries.

Minimize Cross-Contamination

A single-use design improves workflow and, most importantly, eliminates cross-contamination and Hospital-Acquired Infection (HAI) risks. Surgical site infections account for nearly 22% of the more than 700,000 HAIs that occur annually in the United States.3

Pressure Map

Proven Pressure Management

In a study of 15 subjects ranging from 16-54 BMI (average BMI 35.5), the Pink Pad provided an average peak pressure reduction of 43%.

US Government Data4 show Hospital Acquired Pressure Injuries (HAPIs):

  • Are the direct cause of death for roughly 60,000 patients each year
  • Add an estimated $43,180 in costs per hospital stay
  • Result in more than 17,000 medical lawsuits, annually (the second most common claim after wrongful death)
  • Increase hospital stays by nine days on average

Reduce Time, Costs and Unnecessary Risk


Safer, Faster

  • Set up time under one minute saves your hospital up to $1,900 per procedure*
    *Based on OR billable time of $100/minute and an average set up time of 20 minutes for competitive systems.
  • Standardized best-practices can be achieved with pre-configured kits, eliminating makeshift "off-label" solutions

Less Time for Risk

  • The risk of pressure injuries increases by 40% every 30 minutes of surgery5
  • For each hour of the duration of surgery, the risk of SSI increased by 34%6
  • Prolonged anesthesia duration is associated with increased odds of complication, venous thromboembolism, increased length of stay, and return to operating room.7

Clinical Evidence

  • “Postoperative erythema was significantly less common on the Pink Pad…” 8
  • “Patients on the Pink Pad had significantly less displacement with Trendelenburg and faster positioning compared to the other surfaces.” 8
  • “Uterine manipulation was easier on the Pink Pad…” 9
  • “…There was significantly less pain in the Pink Pad group… [it] presents a novel opportunity to limit the narcotic requirement after minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.” 9

What Our Customers are Saying

The Pink Pad safely and comfortably secures patients in Trendelenburg in top hospitals around the world. It has proven itself to be the most effective solution for maximizing patient safety in steep Trendelenburg. Here is what medical professionals have to say:

The Pink Pad has eliminated patient slippage completely! It is easy to attach to the OR bed, and less staff is needed for positioning! Our “wheels in to cut time” has been greatly reduced as well. The Pink Pad has been a great product for our OR!

I've been using the Pink Pad for over two years, and have found it to be indispensable. I'm a staff anesthesiologist at St Luke's Baptist Hospital in San Antonio, Texas with over 15 years experience and do a majority of robotically assisted cases. Especially in these cases where extremes of positioning is a requirement the Pink Pad is not only desirable, it's an absolute requirement. I wholeheartedly recommend its use for all your cases where positioning is very important.

We recently completed a successful robotically-assisted, laparoscopic total hysterectomy on a patient that was 147 kg (324 lb) with a BMI of 46. The Pink Pad held the patient in place for the duration of the procedure. We are very pleased with the Pink Pad.

— Brett Hilliard, CRNA
     Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies

The Pink Pad has allowed me to feel more confident that I can position the patient quickly, while saving OR setup costs and still maximize patient safety. Those of us dedicated to pushing the boundaries of minimally invasive surgery need to utilize innovative products that can both increase patient safety and improve operating room efficiency. I feel confident that by using the Pink Pad, my patients are safe from moving on the table during extreme positioning maneuvers and avoid skin irritation and breakdown associated with other products.
