Proper positioning improves patient outcomes
Getinge works in close collaboration with caregivers to develop patient positioning solutions that improve ergonomic access to the surgical site and reduce positional stress on patients.
Proper patient positioning is an important prerequisite for a successful surgical procedure. Optimum positioning not only ensures the best possible access to the surgical site, but prevents the long-term consequences of nerve damage or pressure ulcers. By avoiding these secondary consequences, patients have faster recovery, easier rehabilitation and better outcomes.
Minimizing complications with procedure-specific positioning
Each of the four general positions - supine, prone, lateral and sitting - presents its own opportunities and challenges.
