MedTech | World’s first inflatable positioning supports...
... a breakthrough in patient care, hygiene and ergonomics in hospitals. Patented technology to position and move patients with compressed air. Our first innovations are for the operating room (e.g neurosurgery) and intensive care units (e.g COVID patients). We design and produce inflatable positioning devices, which enables healthcare workers to position patients quickly and safe without manual power (avoiding work-related musculoskeletal injuries and sick leave). Our solution can save 25% on personnel in surgery rooms and enable 5% more surgeries daily. The optimal positioning “on air” will avoid complications for patient and enable a revolution in surgical procedures.
