Positioning gels are multi-purpose medical tools design to properly position patients during operating room procedures. Patient positioning is an import aspect of any medical procedure; even slight improper positioning during surgery can cause serious unwanted complications for the patient. Gel positioning products help to put the patient in the ideal position and to remain in that position for the duration of the procedure. Operating room gel pads can help to minimize unnecessary injury during surgical procedures that result from positioning issues.
Medical gel pads are a key component for ensuring the safety and comfort of patients during medical procedures. By conforming to their body shape and distributing their weight evenly, patients benefit from support, comfort, and pressure relief during procedures through the use of patient positioning gel. Surgical gel positioning products help airways to remain unrestricted and promote healthy breathing patterns to allow for safe anesthesia procedures.
To restrict unwanted movement, operating room gel pads maintain patient position so that the surgical area remains entirely stationary and doctors are able to perform successfully without worrying about unexpected motions. Additionally, surgical gel positioning can aid with medical staff's ability to handle and move patients during pre-operation preparatory procedures, surgery, and post-operation procedures.
There are a variety of positioning gels for different parts of the human anatomy. These gels prevent ulcers from forming in all of the areas of the body. The gels are made typically from a visoelastic polymer, which is flexible and allows blood to flow through the skin that would not be possible on other surfaces.
Patient positioning gel products are a highly effective and simple form of patient positioning. Medical gel pads prove useful for neonatal, pediatric, adolescent as well as adult applications and are often utilized by renowned hospitals and medical practices all over the country.
