Choosing an armboard pad
Gel pads offer additional shear reduction and enhanced pressure management, great for long procedures. All gels are radiolucent, fire-resistant, and guaranteed for 2 years.
AliGel™ - clinical proof of efficacy
Made of Akton® gel, the standard in O.R. positioning for close to 40 years. Cured rubber with unique physical properties that allow it to maintain its shape and stretch and absorb shock, making it ideal for prevention of pressure ulcers. Not made with natural rubber latex.
AliGel™ Composite Pads combine high-density foam and a top layer of Akton polymer gel.
AliLite™ - lightweight foam/gel combo
AliLite™ is the best choice for lightweight pressure relief, offering armboard pads 50-75% lighter weight than standard gel. It's silicone-based gel wrapped around slow-recovery foam that conforms to patient's shape, helping reduce nerve damage potential. Nonslip base.
From value-priced Polyfoam to pressure-management T-Foam, AliMed offers a variety of foams to meet every need in the O.R.
Polyfoam - value priced!
This open-cell polyurethane foam offers adequate cushioning to help prevent discomfort. Best for the value buyer or short procedures.
T-Foam™ - pressure management!
T-Foam, also referred to as memory foam, is a viscoelastic foam with slow-reactive properties. Helps reduce pressure points by following the body contours much closer than Polyfoam. Best for long-term cases.
