The Pink Pad
40580 - Advanced Trendelenburg Positioning System
The original Pink Pad set the standard for patient safety in Trendelenburg. This more compact version contacts the patients at the sacrum and scapulae ensuring that the patient does not slide even at the steepest degree of Trendelenburg.
Patient sliding is the most dangerous aspect of Trendelenburg positioning — exposing the patient to potential skin shear and abrasion which may lead to further dermal breakdown. Sliding is even more daunting in robotic procedures where it can result in port trauma.
What sets the Pink Pad family of products apart is its ability to prevent unwanted patient movement safely and comfortably, protecting against pressure injury to nerves, skin and soft tissue… even with high-BMI cases.
Unlike other methods, the the Pink Pad eliminates the possibility of brachial plexus nerve injury by placing no pressure on the head, neck, or shoulders.
The Pink Pad is shape-conforming: perfectly molding itself to every contour to create a fit uniquely-formed to each patient. The breathable, open-cell material permits airflow to the skin while wicking away moisture, while the single-use design minimizes cross-contamination.
This patented, easy-to-use system features a set-up time of under a minute, saving valuable OR time.
Additional products like the One-Step Face Protector and Arm Protectors extend the protection provided by the Pink Pad. Select the ready-to-use kit that is right for your patient.
