Shifting and sliding in Trendelenburg. Proper positioning in Trendelenburg is challenging. Most professionals use a complex assortment of straps, foam, gel, tapes, belts, and bean bags to get the job done. These makeshift means do not ensure that the patient will remain stationary and won’t shift or slide. From an engineering standpoint, the difficulty occurs because straps are not designed specifically to anchor at exactly the right point and angle, and are often mounted in a compromised position.
This all-in-one Trendelenburg Stabilizer uses a draw sheet as a nonslip foundation, securely anchored to the table base and rails with integrated straps to prevent sliding. Strategically angled straps at the chest and shoulders work together to securely hold the patient—no slipping and sliding. Additional straps wrap and hold the arms in a neutral, anatomical position, while convoluted foam padding distributes pressure evenly. The critical combination of draw sheet, straps, and foam give Trendelenburg positioning ultimate stability for the surgeon, and safety for the patient. This all-in-one, one-size-fits-all kit takes the frustration out of setup, providing the right equipment in the right size, always.
