Patient Safety Advantages

  • Proven, skin-friendly positioners designed to address the specific patient safety challenges of the Intensive Care Unit
  • Featuring PinkProtect — a breathable, soft, moisture wicking material for the utmost protection against HAPI formation
  • Supportive, high-density cores that help distribute pressure during lengthy patient positioning intervals
  • Unique designs tailored to the specific requirements of ICU patient positioning

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 Data1 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

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

What Our Customers are Saying...

The PinkProtect wedges were a great adjunct to our existing ICU Positioning Kits from Xodus Medical. In all of the patients we’ve proned, we haven’t had a single pressure injury below the chin. We're really glad we started using your product!

— Eric Steinorth

Because of the severity of illness and the range of symptoms, these patients are highly prone to pressure injuries. The ICU kits provided us with an easy to use product that reduced the risk of pressure injury in our pronated patients. I would highly recommend these products to improve safety for critically ill ICU patients, and COVID-19 patients in particular. We will continue to use them in our ICU population. Thank you for reaching out to us early in the crisis and providing these kits so quickly. We greatly appreciate your partnership throughout this very challenging time in NYC.

If you already use Xodus Medical Pink Pad Products in the OR, then you know how amazingly breathable the proprietary, open-cell material is. It prevents shear and wicks away moisture, preventing irritation and breakdown.
