Dabir Surfcaes- DabirAIR™ Micropressure Operating Table Overlays

DabirAIR™ Micropressure Operating Table overlays have been developed as a new tool for surgeons and perioperative professionals to help reduce the risks of hospital-acquired pressure ulcers in the OR. Immobilized acute-care patients may experience impeded blood flow (ischemia) anytime during perioperative and recovery that can lead to tissue damage and cell death.

The DabirAIR™ System:

• Provides low-profile, alternating support and tissue relief (only 1-inch thick when inflated)

• Reduces skin-shear effects due to immersion and alternating inflation

• Overlays are semi-disposable/multi-patient-use with standard hospital cleaning

• Overlays are intelligent, X-ray translucent, easy-to-deploy, and come in various sizes and shapes depending on the specific procedural need
