Xodus medical pigazziXodus Medical Pigazzi Patient Positioning System
The Pigazzi Patient Positioning System (PPPS) is designed for procedures requiring steep Trendelenburg positioning of patients. A Single use Pad, Liftsheet and Body Strap require minimal set-up while creating a complete positioning system for gynecological, colorectal, urological, laparoscopic and robotic procedures. The PPPS is made of shape-conforming, high-density foam material that molds to the body, providing stability to maintain patient positioning. The body is supported and secured without unnecessary pressure on the neck, shoulders or arms, offering protection against nerve damage and pressure ulcers. The system’s open cell technology and anti-motion properties prevent slippage and repositioning. The single use design decreases potential cross-contamination associated with the utilization of reusable devices that require cleaning and maintenance.
