The Material Difference

Breathable open-cell material

The Pink Pad's patented material was developed and refined over a period of several years. It is this unique material that provides the Pink Pad its holding power: the ability to prevent unwanted patient movement in steep Trendelenburg. Yet the Pink Pad offers unparalleled softness, breathability, immersion, and envelopment characteristics that protect patients against HAPIs (Hospital Acquired Pressure Injuries). These material properties are the reason the Pink Pad is clinically preferred in top hospitals around the world.

No patient sliding

Prevents Patient Sliding

Eliminating patient sliding helps hospitals to comply with CMS guidelines for avoiding positioning-related injuries categorized as Never Events. The Pink Pad is incredibly effective and designed to meet the positioning challenges of steep Trendelenburg; even for heavy, high-BMI patients.

No patient redness

Reduced Risk of HAPIs

The Pink Pad's patented material was designed specifically for direct-skin contact. The open-cell design is breathable, moisture wicking, insulative, soft-to-the-touch, immersive, and enveloping. There is so simply no comparison in terms of safe patient positioning materials.

No nerve injury

No Brachial Plexus Injury

The Pink Pad does not place pressure on the head, neck, or shoulders; thereby eliminating the risk of avoidable injuries to those areas and surrounding nerves (including the brachial plexus).

Minimizes Risk of Cross-Contamination

A single-use design lowers risk for hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) and maximizes convenience.

Pressure Relief:
Reduced Risk of HAPIs

The cost of treating hospital acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs) is over $1 billion annually, with average increased hospital stays at nine days, and non-reimbursed treatment costs potentially exceeding $40,000 per patient.

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

The Pink Pad not only prevents patient sliding, but can greatly reduce the risk of Hospital Acquired Pressure Injury.

Images of the same 30.85 BMI subject on a solid surface with and without the Pink Pad show the pressure reduction properties of the Pink Pad. Tests were conducted with an Xsensor Sensor Pad Model PX 100:48.144.02

Save Time & Money


Standardizes preparation, saves money with reduced set-up time

  • 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.
  • No need to reposition patient due to sliding
  • Helps create a universal standard of care

Evidence Based1

  • “Patients on the Pink Pad had significantly less displacement with Trendelenburg and faster positioning compared to the other surfaces.”
  • “Uterine manipulation was easier on the Pink Pad…”
  • “…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.”
  • “Post-operative erythema was significantly less common in the Pink Pad group…”

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.

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.
