Ethox International introduces its P3 line of pneumatic patient positioners. The Shoulder-Float™ is an inflatable auxiliary support cushion providing even weight distribution to prevent ischemia and nerve damage in or near the shoulders. The Pelvic Tilt™ is an obstetrics device designed to lift the patient's right hip 20° to 40° during Cesarean Sections and lengthy deliveries. The Delgado Inflatable Post™ is a fully adjustable cushion that can be inflated/deflated in sliding over the positioning post during surgery to minimize pressure contact points. The line uses a patented displacement technology for optimum positioning, circulation and respiration while reducing ischemia or nerve damage due to compression. According to the company, all P3 products feature:

  • Easy insertion allowing positioners to be slid under the patient and inflated to lift the patient into position.
  • The ability to position difficult patients with a few pumps or turn of the stopcock to lower the patient.
  • The ability to be used in bariatric patients.
  • A compact design and deflatability for easier storage.
