Patient Positioners

Surgical Patient Positioning Supplies and Equipment

Surgical procedures require specific patient positioning for two reasons: first is for the patient's safety, and second is for the surgeon's ease of access to the area to be operated on. And it is for these reasons that surgical patient positioning equipment was developed. The choice of which surgical positioning equipment to use largely depends on the type of surgery that will be performed. Here at SchureMed, our goal is to provide medical facilities with the proper surgical positioners for all types of surgical procedures.

Types of Patient Positioners

There are various types of patient positioners available today, and these are generally based on the area that needs to be accessed for surgical procedures. Here at SchureMed, we provide the following surgical patient positioning supplies and equipment:

Lateral Positioners allow the patient to maintain a side-lying position during a procedure. These are generally used for surgical operations targeting the hemithorax and kidney, as well as for upper endoscopy and ERCP, a surgical procedure that allows the doctor to check the condition of a patient's pancreatic and bile ducts.

Patient Positioning for Surgery Pads are also important surgical positioners that help take the pressure off the head or upper and lower extremities, depending on the surgery to be performed. They also maintain blood flow during a surgical procedure.

Surgical Preppers are used for holding the upper and lower extremities in place during surgical procedures. Our available surgical positioning equipment for this product line include the following:

  • Elbow Arthroscopy Support
  • Extremity Positioner
  • Bi-Lateral Leg Prepper
  • Universal Prepper
  • Leg Prepper
