Butterfly Steep Trendelenburg Bean Bag Positioner

The David Scott Company created the Butterfly Steep Trendelenburg Bean Bag Positioner in conjunction with a leading Boston based Harvard Medical School Surgeon. The polyurethane positioner is designed as an aid in securing patients when steep Trendelenburg is required and is ideal for Da Vinci Robotic Surgery, the company says. The positioner has wings that will support and cradle the patient around the upper arm and shoulders. These wings can be molded into shoulder bumps to fully expose the surgical site for access as necessary. The Butterfly has six individual, replaceable securing straps than anchor to OR tables side rails and offers IV access to the forearm, while the lower wing protects the patient’s hand and keeps the arm from dropping off the table. The positioner also has a GU style cutout for GYN and a wide cutout around the head for better anesthesiologist access.
