Patient Positioning

One of the most critical aspects of any surgical procedure, the proper positioning of the patient can have significant impacts on surgery results. Even minor shifts in positioning can have potentially detrimental effects, including breathing difficulties, cardiac problems, spikes or dips in blood pressure, muscle strain, nerve damage, and excess bleeding.

To help create the most favorable operating conditions for the surgeon, medical assistants often use patient positioning aids to provide easier access to the area being operated on. From general surgical positioning devices to extremely specialized medical positioners, Universal Medical offers all the tools you need for an efficient, ergonomic operating room. We pride ourselves on working with the industry's finest manufacturers of surgical positioning devices, to create the safest, most comfortable operating environment for the physician and the patient.
